It's only my opinion but simply staining the box a darker color does not really qualify as making it looked "aged". That and a different hasp and hinges are the only differences I can tell. Seems like a lot of extra money just to use a different stain, and the "aged" hardware could even be cheaper, who knows?

Since I would likely do a fair amount of work refinishing it to better suit my purpose if I were to purchase this I would just get the least expensive and go from there.
I'll wait for some reviews to show up first however.


It's difficult to tell from the photos or trailer. I wish I could see all three boxes in person. I went ahead and ordered the limited edition. I like the way it looks.

Not as good as seeing them in person, but for anyone that wants to see them together to compare what the pictures look like:

If money was no object I would have probably ordered the Limited edition ($500). But the standard one ($250) has an innocent look that to me is fine for this kind of effect... Can I tell my wife that I just saved $250? Smile

Ordered the standard version as well. Will line it with velvet and possibly re-stain. Need to see it in person first.

I received yesterday the limited edition and stained the wood myself at my workshop today.
Darker is my preference for a seance performance.

Very well constructed and happy with my purchase.
The workings are the same than Anverdi’s but the triggering activation is not “exactly” the same.

The small chain can snag if you activate the box half open, so be careful.
There is a way to easily undo the snag and this is not explained in the video download so if that happens to you just play a bit with the little small round thing included and place it in the “hot spot” several times to undo the snag automatically without breaking anything.

One of my chains is very loose ( the one on the right ) and the other as gone tight so the lid will not open as fully as it should - it opens but the slightest movement will make the box shut.

I ordered the cheap one, I think it just looks more innocent.

I mean the chain can snag if you play and activate it mid open. Then you can not completely open it again unless you do what I wrote.
It happened to me and the way to solve the problem is helpful.

I'm confused, did you mean to say you got the standard version?

Yes, my fault.

I wrote the incorrect one.

Mine is the standard version.
I stained it to make it darker

Not true.

You are supplied with extra gimmick you can place in any other deck brands, envelopes, pictures...
It is up to you.

That box looks so much better than the original one supplied. I’m getting this and staining it myself
