"Mini Wonky" Potbelly jewelry box

 

 Description:

This “Mini Wonky” Potbelly jewelry box was designed and built from a solid block of hardwood by Wood Artist Paul Szewc of Guelph, Ontario, Canada.  We glued 2 blocks together to create one large enough.

Each block is signed by Paul, numbered (he has made 2,000 to date), and dated (first one created in 2005).  Each box is ledgered; your name and country of residence will be recorded in our book of Wonky owners when you purchase one.  So far, they are in 21 countries.

Each box is cut from a solid block of wood, you cannot take a drawer out and put it in another mini wonky because it won’t fit.  They are truly one of a kind.

The knobs are separate pieces of stained wood glued on with a dowel.

The Wonky family current consists of different styles:  Costello, Abbott, Windy, Potbelly, Topheavy and Hula.

The drawers have been flocked and there is leather on the feet to prevent scratching your table or dresser.  The drawers are fully removable.

The box has been finished with sealer and lacquer, thus no care is needed.  It will be handed down through generations.

Uniquely one of a kind – it takes about a day and a half to build each box.

Approx. size is 10-1/2” high x 5” wide feet (7” wide roof) x 3.75” deep roof.
