 ARTISTS DREAM EASELS
WITH LEVITATION TABLE
& ATA CASE
(CUSTOM BUILT)

This was the levitation sequence in my show (used in conjunction with a Aga Levitation Device, also for sale in the known builders section here on this site). Though we used these easels as part of our levitation sequence, this could easily be a stand alone routine. The big easel on the left is where you draw the picture of your girl and then she punches through the paper. It has dimmer controlled lights which really help when the stage is darkly lit. The table in the center is where my girl would lay down to levitate and at the end we did the Asrah vanish, but with a different method than most magicians use. The cover cloth for the girl is also included. The smaller easel on the left was just used as scenery, but you could easily make this easel into a magical effect that fits into the routine. All of this was professionally built in house by furniture builders and all 3 pieces pack flat into 1 ATA case. Also included is large roll of butcher paper for the easels.

 

   TWISTER & ATA CASE
(UNKNOWN BUILDER)

This is a great Twister prop that was professionally built from illusion plans by furniture builders. The prop is in great condition and comes with 1 ATA case for transport. Also comes with 2 gimmicks so you can easily switch routines. We'd use this in Christmas shows to twist up my female assistant, and then I, the magician, would get twisted in our regular season shows. This is a proven crowd pleaser.

 SPEAR CABINET
CUSTOM BUILT

Assistant squeezes into a small cabinet on the top of a table. 8 spears are then slid through the prop from side to side. Front and back doors are opened to show that the assistant has disappeared and the only thing left are the spears running side to side through the cabinet. Custom built from the Jack Hughes World of Magic book plans with a modified Alan Wakeling base design to help make it more deceptive. Original design called for a wood grain base with a black cabinet. Design has been switched to make the prop more deceptive with the wood grain on the top container and base in black. Bolts and wing nuts hold it together and prop folds completely flat. In this state, it measures 45.5" x 31.5" x 12.5" - Terrific beginning illusion, it is lightweight, goes together and comes apart quickly and can be performed surrounded. No case, will need to be boxed or crated. Packs Flat, Lightweight, Jack Hughes / Wakeling Style Design - No mirrors, no black art. You are really seeing straight through. Doors closed, spears removed and assistant reappears unharmed and maybe a costume change?

 AGA LEVITATION
(BUILDER UNKNOWN)

Classic Rising Block Method - Girl lays on couch, rises up, hoop is passed, she floats back down Big applause! You have done the most requested stage illusion. This one has all the features you need for a multi-purpose effect. We do not use a gooseneck. It is un-needed if you simply use a large hoop. Straight bar gives you the advantage of less angle problems.
Major improvement is that you can pull the lift-bar back through the curtain and from the cradle and wheel the couch out to the footlights so the girl can sit up and take her bow! This avoids having the couch stuck back at the curtain. Lift can be configured for lifting a heavy product for a Trade Show performance. It has lifted 400 pounds. Comes in two sturdy
wooden crates and ready for the road.
