Topic: Good Cheap Find for Rolling Magic Cart
Message: Posted by: Dave Schutt (Nov 24, 2003 05:27PM)
I was on one of my many "Magic Props Out of Ordinary Items" quests and I came across a good find. At TARGET, they sell a microwave cart for $29.95 that has a wooden top approx 16x18 and stands 34" high, which is good for me since I'm 5'10" (with boots on and stretching my neck..). The frame is metal and very sturdy and has two shelves that can be moved to any position.

I then went to Walmart and purchased a 5'by 6'piece of velvety type material for $6 and some stick on velcro. I also borrowed an idea I saw from a local magician and purchased a small hook on wire rack from Lowes for $2.97 and attached this to the first shelf. This hangs down at a 45degree angle is very handy to organize and have access to decks of cards. Finally, on top of the fabric I placed my large close up pad.

So for under $50 I have a nice rolling magic table that is sturdy versatile and looks good. The only negative is that it doesn't fold up, but I don't do this full-time so it's not that inconvenient for me to just throw it in the back of my car when I need it.

If anyone wants more info or descriptions PM me I'll be happy to help! :stuckinbag:
