Phantom Casket by Magic Wagon(c. 2014) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Here is another beauty from the Magic Wagon team. The box is made of a gorgeous naturally aged teak wood with inlay. It uses a wonderful and clever principle that means there are no switches, mirrors, lights, batteries, or electronics and everything is self-contained. Even though the box appears to be innocent, you are able to divine what has been placed in the box, every time.
Effect: Special thanks to Mr. Danny Selnick for suggesting the ideas & consultations.
Have you ever discovered a mysterious object in your basement or attic?
The performer displays a small wooden casket and explains its backstories. He then asks an audience member to open the casket and to take out its contents. Inside are an antique bracelet, a bear doll, a “pearl” ponytail holder, a Chinese tea cup, a crumpled paper ball and a small color tile. The performer also states that he will attempt to conduct a magical experiment to demonstrate his mystical connection to these objects. He then turns his back and asks an audience member to place one of these objects back inside and lock the casket. The performer then turns around, holds the casket in full view and immediately names the chosen object while the casket is still locked!
The mechanism was brilliantly designed and carefully constructed by a master craftsman.
Each casket is built from the total of 85 wooden parts and requires over 40 hours to build.
The casket measures approximately 12.5cms wide by 10cms tall and 9cms deep and has been painstakingly handcrafted from natural aged teak wood with beautiful inlay work and a lightly distressed oil finish.
The woodwork that went into these is absolutely exquisite.
