I had the good fortune of seeing the lovely Luca Volpe perform in Ipswich and I acquired one of his cool locks. He uses it in a three keys to baldpate routine combine with a chair test and kicker ending.
Now my style is somewhat different as I invoke deep philosophical ideas.
So, for my routine, I wanted a special box with a brass hasp that contains something 'special'. I knew that the JC Mooreni made the best box I had seen to date. His Illumini is a true work of art, so I wrote to him and ordered a custom made box that can hold my Loeb Classic edition of Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics. The box was made to measure in a beautiful exotic wood and finished to perfection.
I will be showing the box to the attendees of Saturday's Tabula Mentis...not only does the box fit my requirements perfectly, it also has a removable plinth in the bottom so if I want a bit more volume, I can remove it easily. John communicated throughout the whole process and met my every need. He even shipped the box to my hotel in San Francisco last week to save on shipping to the UK! How awesome is that?
John has put pictures up on the website and is happy to receive requests for your custom needs. He is a true craftsman and a great businessman who has outstanding customer service.
