 DOUBLE TIP OVER TRUNK
CUSTOM

It was built by a furniture builder using my specs
and Paul Osborne plans. The inside trunk comes down even and the person inside is in control of the bottom trap of the inside trunk. The inside trunk needs to be painted or covered on the inside. I used strong contact paper but it has not been used so the

 HEAD CHOPPER 6 FOOT TALL
WITH FIBER CASES

CHALET MAGIC

From Osborne's HAUNTED ILLUSIONS book..... The Lumberjack's Dream Illusion. One of a kind, built by Chalet Magic. An amazing alternative to the guillotine. A lumberjack's "sawdown stock" used to trim smaller tree limbs is introduced and a head of lettuce is placed in the opening. Large saw blade is released and the lettuce is easily sawn thru and falls into 2 pieces.
A volunteer is brought on stage and the front panel is lowered as the saw is brought back up and two carrots or wooden support pegs are put into holes on the uprights. Volunteer's head is inserted thru the foam slits in the front door and on the count of 3 the saw is brought down back and forth sawing thru the pegs and the volunteer!... All is reversed and the volunteer is released unharmed! Built like a tank!

Over 6' tall.... Excellent condition & Includes 2 chalet strapped fiber cases. Bolts together in minutes. Both ends of the saw blade are seen throughout and travel up and down as well as back and forth in a natural sawing motion as you saw through the objects without harming your volunteer.

 STRETCHER (ELASTIC LADY)
& 2 ATA CASES
OWEN MAGIC SUPREME
This gorgeous Stretcher Illusion was the last one Owens Magic ever made. It was built in 2001 from the original Thayer Magic plans. It has been performed once on stage and once on American television. Effect: Assistant enters the beautiful illusion and sticks her head, hands and feet out the front. Ropes are attached to her. Magician then pulls on the ropes stretching her completely apart! Her head even bounces up and down as well as rotates a full 360 degrees around! She is then brought back together and exits the illusion unharmed. Owens Magic craftsmanship on this beauty is incredible! Purple velvet front against the carefully carved wood pops brilliantly on stage. Column legs are each hand spun and painted in gold only as Owen Magic can do.
Whether you are a collector or performer, this magnificent piece of art is a one of a kind! Do not pass this up. Own a piece of Thayer Magic History! Assembled Prop measures: 9'8" (290cm) High x 10 feet (300cm) Long x 2 foot 8 inches (80cm) Deep - Comes complete with 2 ATA cases.

GLOWING BROKEN & RESTORED
THREAD TABLE
WELLINGTON

For sale is a custom made table, made in the matching style of Wellington's Floating Table, that can be thoroughly examined and used as a regular table throughout a show. It is very solid, strong, and heavy, a great touch to later validate the lighter floating table version. We used this for our Glowing Gypsy Thread effect, which was in the beginning of our show. We then performed with the matching Floating Table towards the end. This table can hold a wide variety of props, including heavy items, and is perfect for any type of close-up magic. Also included is a professional grade table top black light fixture for use with glow/UV thread. The light is powered with electricity, has an on/off switch on the top, and sits flat and low profile on the table. It directs a strong light straight upwards to perfectly illuminate the thread in your hands for a classy and extremely effective Gypsy Thread presentation. Its also packs flat for transport and assembles in less than 5 minutes.
All items are in excellent/like new condition.

WALK THROUGH INDUSTRIAL FAN
SECRET WORKSHOP / UK

Large Industrial Fan Walk Thru Illusion based on Andrew Mayne's Turbo for sale. Originally built in the UK by The Secret Workshop, the illusion has TWO different methods for passing through the blades. Small fans hidden inside keep the front sheet riffling as you pass through and the entire prop withstands audience examination. The massive illusion gets gasps from the audience as it is revealed and due to its versatile design allows lots of different presentations including a show stopping reappearance at the back of the room. Currently in storage in Nashville. No ATA cases although it breaks apart fairly well, we can build a crate for it to ship to you. On a piece of stage decking it stands at over 10 feet high.

SANDZ
(OF THE DESERT)
JAY MATTIOLI

This piece of magic has been published in magic books and even sold in different variations and yet, at best, all you would receive is a few baggies of sand with some vague instructions. For the first time, the classic Sands of the Desert routine (aka Hindu Sands) is being released to the magic community as a beautifully detailed, entire package with absolutley everything you need to perform the effect! The effect is timeless and can be performed from 3 feet or 200 feet away from your audience. If you have been turned away from this effect in the past because the details and "things" needed to pull it off masterfully were missing.

THIS TIME, JAY HAS DONE ALL THE
WORK FOR YOU AND IS SHARING HIS UNIQUE TIPS AND YEARS OF EXPERIENCE WITH YOU. Resting on a custom table are three martini glasses filled with 3 vibrant colors of sand and a small pedestal upon which rests a large bowl filled with water. Showing his hands empty, magician places them in the water, swirling the water around, causing the clear water to turn black! Then one by one, magician pours each of the 3 colored sands into the water, swirling the water around each time. After all 3 sands are mixed up in bowl magician reaches back into the swamp like water with his empty hand and pulls out each individual colored sand, completely dry and separate from each other. Finally, with a swirl of empty hands, the black water turns back to clear!!!

 ELASTIC LADY
GUSTAFSON ILLUSIONS

A girl steps into cabinet with arms and head protruding. Arms move down more than 4 feet from their normal positions thanks to another girl hidden in the base. Head moves from top to bottom of the cabinet. In the funniest move, the head is revolved a la "The Exorcist." After the series of moves, the girl steps from the cabinet, none the worse for wear. This Illusion, which is fabricated from birch plywood, is in immaculate condition. Cabinet, which consists of eight 70 x 15-inch panels, is beautifully lacquered in magenta and black. Black base, which is decorated with chrome trim, is 38 inches square. If shipped ready to roll onstage, the illusion is 81 inches high. Base is covered with black stretch fabric to facilitate entry of the concealed girl. When shipped disassembled, base and top fit into a 42 x 42 x 21 inch crate and panels fit into a 74 x 19 x 13 inch crate.

Curtain is closed and a tall cabinet (parachute cabinet) is rolled out onstage. It is on very tall thin legs so entire view is visible from beneath. Doors automatically open and it I quite obviously completely empty. Cabinet is spun around and faced forward and doors are closed. From rafters above the parachute cabinet drops a G.I.

As the doll descends into the cabinet it turns into the vanished performer who just minutes ago had vanished from the cockpit chair Performer could also reappear from back of the audience with the parachute if wanted or the parachute cabinet could be placed elsewhere.
