Maybe it was just watching Mark Wilson so much growing up but I always lusted after that JG Crystal Casket. I loved the simplicity of his design and everything about it... plus the fact that I just loved the effect because I liked whipping cloths off stuff! Speaking of that and Asrahs, it was always said that no one could whip an asrah cloth off like Chuck "Kirk" Kirkham. There's just something about that old school flair that I have always loved.

For those wishing to build their own Crystal Casket probably the most comprehensive guide is produced by Gerry Frenette on his 'Build your own Illusions' DVD set; he spends the better part of an hour detailing every phase of it's construction step by step. Also included is a data disc allowing you to print out basic workshop plans to accompany the tutorials.

I have written a e-book about illusionbase building in english called UltiBase and wonder if there are any builders out there who can help me to proofread the book?? its only 16 pages so it's not a heavy job to do.
And have a fast look at the buildingplans to see if I have missed something.
I would be very grateful and you end up with a great book (i hope) Smile
(i have done buldingplans for crystal cage, phantom cargo, spiker an many more, I have been working with cad and illusions the last 20 years)

Looks like you just pilfered Rich Hill's designed base including the pucks in the corners. Are these yours to sell, I don't think so.

It is Rich Hills design on the crystal cage with the pucks in the corners, but the picture is just to recognize the illusion, The book is only about the base and legs with case, there are many hours behind the thinking of the base and legs to pack small, work with any type of illusion that uses this type of base, and is fairly easy to build.
I have drawn a couple of illusions for this base I call UltiBase (and UltiLegs) and all illusions are only inspired by others not copied, and I have tryed to leave as many options I could think of to make the illusions uniqe and the same time invite the builder to design something of there own.

Darren Romeo has a beautiful Crystal Casket design. I believe it’s called the “Romeo Casket.” It looks like an antique tank put on rollers and not a magic prop. It also incorporates BA into the base which adds to the deception. Saw him perform it at the Magic Castle and it was a real fooler.

Here’s a link to Darren Romeo performing his crystal casket. Not the clearest video but it’ll give you a good idea of his design. Starts at 2:24

I’ve seen Darren perform a few times, such a great personality. He does a great job of getting the audience on his side really quick, which takes talent!

Something I really like about his Crystal Casket performance is that he assembles it in front of the audience, including a bottom / floor piece of the casket which adds a new piece of mystery to the illusion.

I completely agree. Darren has the unique ability to form a bond with audience almost immediately. As for his casket the first time I saw him perform it the bottom part of the assembly really fooled me. His entire show is worth seeing. You get your money worth and it’s also a great way to see Blackstones Floating Lightbulb which Darren performs exactly the same way.

His casket was made by Thom Rubino, Thom made about 6 of these, all very similar in design. One of the nicest out there.
