Zwiggle Surprise Box ver. 1.0

Zwiggles were one of my very first toys. Originally random curvy cuts with a bandsaw - cut from scraps of wood left over from a local lumber mill. I would just look at the resulting odd shape, add one or two eyes, one or two cuts to create a mouth or two, add wheels, and that was a Zwiggle! This little guy was a particular favorite who seemed to pop up fairly frequently, and subsequently was turned into many things including a lamp! Video below!Here is an old blog post about a larger Zwiggle my friend Rick Shannon had.
