Chiang Mai Block by Magic Wagon(c. 2007) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
It is clear by now that the Magic Wagon guys are serious about quality props. This is probably the single finest piece of magic woodwork I have ever seen. It is that good! The finish, the lines, the inlay, the velvety lining, the snugness and fine tolerances of the whole unit is just breathtaking!
Everything about this screams high end quality. The effect might be as old as the hills and you grandmother may well guess the method, but to lay people the effect is stunning. And for Collector’s what a huge treat you are in for, you will not be able to find a finer piece of “furniture” to fill your magic den with and each of the pieces in this line are just so much better than almost anything being produced today. The name was suggested by Tony Curtis.
Effect: Chiang Mai Block is an attractive magical prop that is an amazing demonstration of wood inlay techniques by itself. Each set has been patiently handcrafted with intricate inlay work, felt interior and topped with the finest possible coating by skilled craftsman.
The performer holds the ends of the cords that are threaded through the holes on both sides of the block, suspending the block above the table and openly placed into the cabinet with the ends of the cords protruding from each side of the cabinet. The front door is now closed to secure the block and the ends of the cords are taken by the performer, wrapped over the lid and tied in a knot. On the performer’s command, the cords visibly penetrate through the block and the cabinet, leaving the cords in the performer’s hands and the block in the cabinet! The cabinet, block and cords can all be inspected by a spectator.
The cabinet is 5 inch high with a 4 inch square footprint. The block is 2 inch cubed.
Finished in the finest possible coating with hand polishing and sanding in between.
