I got the idea for this from a post a few weeks ago here. I combined a large book, some old bottles, a skull with the idea of not just phrenology but performing a magic trick and an original idea of a quackery machine....


Part medicine....part magic....and a whole lot of fun!

The box looks very nice, but I wouldn't use it as a regular card trick. I'd get me a blank card deck, age it and then write the names of diseases on it.Then your box would even give a medical diagnosis.

As long as it keeps creativity alive and fun is the 1st priority! Consider a rapping hand.
One ignorant comment - slow down...try not to rush through the tour of the box. I would love to know any back story of the box and it's contents - thus making it an ongoing project.

Yes, A rapping hand would be nice. I was also thinking of an old candle after being lit throughout can change color. I am limited on space however but can make an accessory type box to carry a few more items in.

Incidentally most of the electronics are hidden behind the big bottle on the lower left inside of book, the bottle can be taken out however and possibly can be used for a liquid effect that changes color, etc. There is a removable backboard behind bottle so nothing can be seen when bottle is removed. I can also obtain old medical tools such as handheld saws, vintage hypodermic needles, etc. Endless possibilities.

I will present this as my great grandfathers doctors case disguised as book so as not to scare patients when he made house calls.

Happy to see someone was inspired by the 17th-century 'poison' book. Well done!

Yes, that info was super inspiring, I just got me a large old Bible on Ebay and want to start my own project.

Just watched the video again for inspiration and it just came to me that the final reveal appears a little too fast for my taste.

Perhaps you should blow and wave the freshly printed piece of paper to build more tension.
