Nest of 5 Boxes (Improved) by Mel Babcock(c. 2006) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Mel Babcock has got to be one of the finest wood guys in the business today. Everything I have of his is just beautiful! This is the from the second run of nest of boxes that Mel produced in a limited edition of 25 (again I believe). They have purple lining. They use the classic Berg method which is a simple but effective method so you can concentrate all your effort on the presentation. This second release also includes a great improvement so that you can give the fourth box to the spectator so that he opens it and removes and opens the final fifth box, without you touching it once. This is not possible with the first set that Mel produced or other Nest of Boxes using the Berg method.
The boxes are made of select exotic woods: Padauk with Sycamore inlay, Cherry with Wenge inlay, Chechen with Sycamore inlay, Teak with Wenge inlay, and Cocobolo with Wenge inlay. When all of the boxes are laid out on the table they are breathtaking.
Effect: This is a set of five nested boxes, with each one made of a different wood with contrasting inlay. A watch or marked coin is borrowed from a spectator. It is vanished. The largest box is unlocked and opened. The next box is removed and unlocked. When the last box is remove, it is taken to the spectator. She is given the key and asked to unlock it. She opens it and finds the vanished watch or coin.
Approx. Price: $895.00 (2007) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
