This "Wonky" chest of drawers, Series B style, was designed and built by Wood Artist Paul Szewc of Canada.

David Irvine of Brampton, Ontario painted this mini wonky box. For more of his work visit his etsy store The Gnarled Branch.

Each box is signed by Paul, numbered (he has made over 2000 to date), and dated (first one created in 2005).

The Wonky 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.

To obtain the desired thickness of the box, multiple a pieces of solid ash hardwood have been laminated together.

The Wonkies are truly one of a kind; drawers are removable but not interchangeable with another Wonky.

The Wonky family currently consists of 7 different styles: Costello, Abbott, Windy, Potbelly, Topheavy, Hula and the newest style, Tipsey.

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

The box has been hand painted and finished with sealer and lacquer, thus no care is needed. It is a treasure to last; something to be handed down through the generations.

Uniquely one of a kind.

It takes about 3 weeks to build each box plus many hours for David to paint them.

Approx. size is 49.75" h x 28.75" w, 19" d

Our goal at Masterpiece Lasered Wood is to provide you with the best quality product we can. As wood is a natural, living product sometimes its grain and texture can get a little unruly. Knots, streaking, and other flaws in the grain can occur during the natural growth of the tree. We at Masterpiece Lasered Wood, home of the famous “wonky” furniture design, believe these qualities add a uniqueness to our product rather than flaws. We do, however, try our to best to ensure every product we create is free from large, unsightly markings and deformities in the wood but cannot guarantee they will be free of minor flaws. If you are like us and LOVE some rebellious wood grain or an interesting knot here and there (as long as it doesn’t interfere with the use), let us know and we will try and dig up something special for your tastes.
