Does anyone have this?
It looks well made...

What exactly is the effect?

Its a prediction effect spectator chooses an object and in the bottom of the chest is a single prediction of the object they chose.
TA Walters explains the construction in "Mind Myth and Magic"
There is also a great presentation in Borodin's book 'Sheherazade' both these books are a must have if you are intrested in mentalism or Bizarre magic.

Well, I guess the tabman can comment.

I can say that it is well made of mahogany, rosewood and other exotic woods, lined with 100% wool gaming table (Mali cloth) cloth and hand rubbed with antique oils. The five artifacts in the case are museum quality reproductions of a pre-columbian idol head, a large petrified sharks tooth found in the shoals of Deleware Bay, an obsidean arrowpoint, a cameo found at my grandmother's old place and a blue glass (colonial America) bottle neck. The original artifacts are in my possession and I make the molds in my shop and they are hand painted to match the originals which are set in sculptures mounting clay. I work alone and it takes many hours to make one of these chests and the artifacts contained therein. There are some pretty good pictures of them on my website

The methodology is quite simple and basically foolproof. I have a lot of respect for the late T.A. Waters and enjoyed working with him on this. He outlined two additional effects for me during our meetings at The Magic Castle that I may make someday.

I am enjoying The Magic Café very much and am happy to talk about any of this stuff and help anyone.


...Your professional woodworking and "tender" loving care in the products you make, make the wait worthwhile. Thanks for all you do...
