No Jerry Andrus Linking Safety pins, I am surprised you do not have this in your case.

I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere ;-)

Rklew64... is the wooden art case from Michael’s very heavy? Is it compartmentalized and is it easily modified if it is?

Thanks,
Bruce

Hi Bruce,
The wood case is very light!
Unfortunately the compartments are fixed, the wide compartments top and bottom and then 3 smaller sections. The wide sections just fits a deck of jumbo cards.
Sign up with them to get coupons and you can pick that thing up for under $20, but regular price is still rather reasonable.
What is not seen is that I also lined the bottom with thin green felt that comes in sheets and has an adhesive back.
The top is recessed so you could modify to fit and pack more flat items.
It is 17x13 and 3 inches high. I can slip in-between the case a close-up pad to take out and place on the top of the case when closed.
If you do get a chance to see it, you'll see right away how this case is from its top and bottom. I hope you do, it was a surprise stumbled onto kinda thing. So I got this just about a 2 months ago. Check near the art portfolio and small storage bins area.
I think it is meant to hold brushes and paint or such, because it comes with a palatte like board. Also now when I look at cases - I look to see if I can trick it out such as place magnets around it so then I have a case that is PK'ed!
I love it because the look is unassuming, clean and very different. I keep kicking the idea of staining it and all that to give it a more aged and richer look. My black attache' case holds the more higher end effects and tricks while the wood case holds current effects to practice and carries the more casual fun silly tricks like an electric deck, stiff rope, etc. I also keep some index cards in both cases to make notes for anything.
Ok, come to think of it try to go today. : )

Thanks for the enthusiastic review of the art case... I will check it out. When I use to travel with stuff I had a Pelican brand case... I really don’t travel anymore and I like the look of the wood. If I go this route I would distress and stain it as you suggested... make it look like an old treasure if you know what I mean.
When closed can you store a set of Cups and Balls in it?

Thanks,
Bruce

I don't think it can, but then it depends on the cup diameter. Make sure to bring certain key things with you for a dry fit so to speak.
3 inch height means that it is less inside - you know.

The case in my first post above also doubles as a tableside assistant. When covered with a cloth it can also be used as a close-up performing area.

Phil... What attaches the case to the tripod, is there some kind of flange (is that the right word, flange)? Once set up, how stable is the set-up?... does the table top kind of wiggle or shake?

Thanks,
Bruce

Screwed to the bottom of the case is a 3 inch steel disc. The tripod is attached via a 1/2 inch bolt which screws directly into the steel disc. The length of the bolt is adjustable so you could put a wide washer between the nut and steel disc which would improve stability. Having said that the little bit of 'wobble' you get has never been a issue.

Rklew64... I lucked out and found the art case and another style at 50% off from Hobby Lobby. I will play around with the boxes and organize and paint them, it looks like they will hold some Cups and Balls; I will share photos with you when competed... it will be a while... I am slow with little spare time.

Take care,
Bruce
