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.

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.

    Breathtaking Quality!

    Ok so 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 amost anything being produced today.

    The instructions are clear and everything I have received from this company has been delivered and packaged very well.

    Highly Recommended!

    Exquisite Craftsmanship

    This item is gorgeous to look at and hold. The Magic Wagon folks have crafted this magic piece that is just exquisite in every way, from the precision fitting of all the pieces, the inlaid wood design, the interior of the box and the beautiful mirror finish. Everything fits together perfectly. The finish is like a fine piano.

    I like the effect of the rope penetrating the block, and it is quite easy to set up and perform. It looks great in an office on a shelf or on display at home amidst other pieces in a collection.

    The Chiang Mai Block and every detail about it has my highest rating. Magic Wagon has truly set a high standard for detail and beauty in their design of this unique piece of magic.

    If you like beautiful magic, then get this item. It is truly a collector’s find.

    Great Quality

    You will be impressed with the quality of the Chiang Mai Block. The effect is simple (i.e., the item isn’t gaffed in any way), but the beautiful workmanship results in an elegant presentation of a simple but old trick.
