With a diploma in Manufacturing Wood Technology and 30 years experience Paul Szewc of Masterpiece - Wonkies & Art Gallery, Guelph, Ontario, Canada brings it all together in his masterpieces. When the challenges of cabinet making became routine Paul Szewc decided to build “wonky” cabinets. He has created 6 different styles of mini wonky boxes that can be used for jewellery. The large full size wonkies can be used as a dresser or a piece of art. For his unique tables he incorporates butterfly keys and live edge.

Recently Paul Szewc has started making wooden games such as cribbage and euchre counter boxes. He also builds an assortment of small boxes and a large variety of cooking utensils. Some of the wood he draws from the trees he fells on his own property or from other people bringing him trees. Using his own lumber mill and relying on his partner in business and life – wife Sandra – for daily assistance, Szewc has turned a craft into an unusual art form. Szewc has opened up his own gallery in Guelph where he proudly exhibits his creations with other local artists such as pottery, wooden bowls, glass, jewellery and some paintings.
