Looking for a table like the one in the clip of Oz Pearlman performing Nemesis by Sam Webster (Instant Download) on Penguin's site. Can someone point me in the right direction to locate one. Thanks.


PS: I would provide a link but having issues with my iPad. (Ok, it's more like my iPad is having issues with me.)

These tables are very expensive, some over a thousand dollars. The cheapest is the one by Magic Makers, and if you know anything about that company, they sell import junk that falls apart. You can buy that table anywhere from $400 to $700 as Magic Makers promises big profits to the magic dealers. They are overwhelmingly over priced.


I don't know if these kinds of tables are available any longer, they were popular 5 to 10 years ago, as some of the craftsman that made them have gone out of business or passed away. I referenced a forum post that discusses these type of tables you can read if you care to.


I really think you can must make one easier then buying one. There is a DVD of guy making a half circle magic close-up table. You can just by folding legs and attach. Then people can set up close at the table.

Mike Ammar had to say about the expensive tables in one of his lectures. He had a table that cost well over a $1000, and he ask someone to sign a playing cards. They did the old tail end sweep with the pen. They marked his very expensive table permanently. Of course he was shocked and sickened, but he had to keep smiling.

Thanks Bill! Great advice and will probably go in a different direction now. Truly appreciate the extra time you took to add links and provide complete information. Thanks again!
