Topic: Paul Osbourne Illusions
Message: Posted by: streetmagician_08 (Mar 30, 2004 01:52PM)
Hey,
I am interested in building my own illusions, and am interested in the Paul Osbourne books. Can someone give me a review of what illsuions are in each book. Example the name of the illusion and what happens. This would help out a lot.

There are so many it is hard to pinpoint just one.

Everything from sub-boxes, sword boxes, Vampire Illusion, etc. Check them out if you are interested in producing your own stuff.

This list is getting longer because it is continuely being updated form posts added to this topic.
----------------------------

Image how long this post would be if I stated what the illusion does. Its good for quick locations and searching the Internet for them. What is missing are Osborne's Classic Illusions (should have that by the end of the week) and all 118 plans in Osborne's Black Book from the Genii Articles. One can goto [url=http://www.osborneillusionsystems.com/]Osborne Web Site[/url] and buy all these:

As with all illusions on an 8 1/2 x 11 page, they are good but if you are going to build it, get the individual larger plan. Many times there is more information and the information is easier to read.

These books gives the reader a good look at the different types and versions that have been produced. They give a more detailed insight to the study of illusions.

Thank you so much you seem to be the man to ask, when if comes to illusion plans. Would you recommend the big black book? Thanks. Does it have an assortment of illusions?

Does anyone have the worlds worst magicians?
Message: Posted by: Dennis Michael (Mar 31, 2004 07:35PM)
One of the best books I bought is the Osborne's Black Book ($90). You get 118 plans, that's less than a dollar per plan. In the lot there are numerous plans you could have purchase for $25 dollars each, but they are included in the book. Also there are plans in this book that are in the other Osborne $40 books.

Hmmm, yes you guys are sort of right. It is a little difficult to read Osborne's plans right. But I think you should take it at face value and use your own creativity to any of these drawings. Theres no rule as to how to design an illusion. He who breaks the rules creates something orginal. So don't take the measurements and everything. You will end up making a box which is right for Paul Osborne's assistant. Not yours. :lol: Bye.
Message: Posted by: Starrpower (Jul 4, 2004 04:58PM)
I think the Osborne plans are the best for understanding. Steinmeyer's have great ideas and realistic dimensions, but explain very little about the actual building techniques. Osborne explains enough to get you through without all the complicated details of a professional draftsman (have you ever seen one of Jack Dean's plans? Perfect, down to the smallest detail, but a nightmare if you can't read blueprints). Osborne hit the perfect balance, IMHO.

But, I'll reiterate what's been said before -- don't follow his dimensions! His illusions might fit your average 8-year-old, but not (in most cases) a real adult person! Measure your assistant to get the right fit.
Message: Posted by: dsilverfield (Jul 11, 2004 04:34AM)
These days I prefer ideas like the ones that Andrew Mayne publishes. No scales no measurements, at least not pin point ones. Take the idea and work on it and improvise. I built a Jam from Randwoodbury's book and the outcome today is nothing like what he described. It is even better IMHO. The same happened with Modern Art.
Bottom line do not worry about mesurements. Work them out yourself. It is more fun that way.
Message: Posted by: MarkTripp (Jul 11, 2004 05:30AM)
Well, in defense of Paul, he tells people in all of his books to make up a cardbord mock up first to make sure the illusion will fit your girl.

The problem with that is, what if THAT girl quits?

Unless you are making lots of money and can afford to hire the "perfect" girl for these things, you run into a major problem before you begin.
Message: Posted by: rtgreen (Jan 4, 2005 11:23AM)
This is a great list. To help myself out, I took Dennis's list and put it into Excel. Now I can sort it and look at the different sources. (There is over 600 plans in this list!) When I did this, however, a question came up. Dennis says all of these are available on the Osborne site, but there is quite a bit I can't find. The sources I can find on the site are:

Haunted Illusion Book
Illusion System Blueprints
Illusion System Book 1
Illusion System Book 2
Illusion System Book 3
Illusion System Book 4
Illusion System The First Collection (Black Book)
Illusions Evolution

But I don't see these:

Abbotts Illusions Book
Blueprints Older Plans
Build Your Own Illusions
Great Illusions Book
Modern Art
Owens Illusions Book 1
Owens Illusions Book 2
Stage Illusions for 1-2-3 Performer Show
The Classic Illusions Vol. 1

I know Modern Art is available from Steinmeyer, but I would like to find the others (Especially the Abbotts book). Does anyone know if these are still in print and where they can be found?

Thanks,
Richard

BTW: If anyone wants a copy of the Excel sheet with Dennis's list, just PM me your e-mail and I'll send you a copy.

I should have said, all of OSborne Plans are on Osbone's site.

I purchased all my books from Denny & Lee. Of them all, the Abbotts ones are a series of hand drawn prints and a lot of them are in Osbore's Vol 4. Not the best in plans. The transition from Y=Thayer plans to Osborne is interesting.

Hi, Dennis, I'd just like to say thank you for such a comprehensive list of plans. You went well beyond the call of duty and for that we're all very grateful. I do however have one more question. It involves costing. How much do you think it is possible to make the following illusions for?

Sub trunk
Artists dream
Assistants dream
Backstage with the magician
Shadow box
Laser flyto
Flash trunk
Broom suspension
Cargo net

Thank you very much. I appreciate that I am asking a lot. I also understand the difficulties of working out these prices, but I am really wanting to know what is realistically within my budget. Maybe you could draw from your own experiences.
Thanks once again,
Nick

If you build them yourself and if you are able to just pay for material it would cost somewhere around:

Sub trunk - $50 to $100. I used pallets from a trucking company this cost me nothing but $10 for the hardware

Backstage with the magician - This cost about $100 to $150

Shadow box - This can cost, since it includes metal, around $300.

The ones that are listed are only the ones I have worked with.

Hope this helps. But don't forget this also depends on the area you live in for prices. Some areas maybe a bit prices with metal and wood products then others.

Michael -

Which shadow box did you build that requires that kind of monetary investment? I've built three, and never once did I invest more than about $200, including casters and corded light. The only metal involved in the plans I've used was fasteners, hardware and casters.

Nick - if you were to put an approximate monetary amount on what you would be able to spend, I'd bet some of the bright minds here on the Café could offer very real suggestions on how much show you could build with it, if you were creative and willing to invest your time and handiwork.

For example, one could build a full hour illusion show for less than 50 USD using the plans in UF Grant's Victory Carton Illusions.

Guy,

We were able to get ours made for free by using a cell phone holder box from Sam's Club. It looks great and it was at a great price for free. But that was a long time ago now. The price we got was from a gentleman who quoted it with the metal and all because we wanted to have it built with metal. But like I said it all depends on where you live. That was the quote I got and I wasn't using wood at all for that. Sorry if I was unclear on that.

Nick,

It is very feasible to put a show together at a good price. It is a matter of getting the materials a good price and having someone or yourself put it all together.

Best

Hi Nick -

If you're a builder, or an aspiring builder, that is plenty of money to assemble a show with high quality props. That is, if your ultimate goal is to put together a show. There is nothing wrong with building props for the sake of building props. It's a wonderful creative outlet for the magician/craftsman.

The money is not an obstacle, so let's move on.

For the sake of written conversation, I'll assume your ultimate goal is a large stage show you plan to someday perform.

If you are already set on the effects you want to perform, then it's only a matter of costing out the materials, tools, and time. You will find economy by buying common items in bulk (5 pounds of screws vs. 1 pound packages here and there, gallons of paint vs. pints, etc.)

If you aren't quite set, I'd recommend putting together a "wish list" dream show and script it out. You might find that some pieces are out of place, do not fit the show, or too closely duplicate the effect of another piece in your show. How many vanishes, transpositions, levitations do you really want? If your show is too heavy on one or two effects, consider adding some variety and texture to it with effects that are different, use smaller props, or are more character driven.

Then, bounce your show plan off the folks here on the Café. You'll get some great advice from people who have been exactly where you are now.

Once it's evolved to where you are pretty sure it is the show you desire, it's time to locate some plans, or at least pictures of the props you desire to build, and start making some mock ups from corrugated cardboard and tape. Large appliance boxes can be had for free from various stores, if you ask nicely.

You will be able to rough out the dimensions for your props, and might discover that some of the effects are not "you." You might also discover that you don't want to tote all of those props around once you see the real size of them.

If you're now ready to go ahead and invest in building the various props, find the best plans (look in your existing library, or ask here on the Café) and look them over for a few days. Let the design percolate in your mind, and you will likely find ways to make the design work well with the building skills you possess.

As an alternative route, consider inexpensive building options. Here's a recent example from my life:

My current show is a two-magician evening illusion show. I perform an escape from a sub-trunk type packing crate (not exactly, but close enough for illustration.)

We approached the local vocational school last year and asked if the carpentry department would like a medium sized project for one of the experienced students. (Brand new students are enthusiastic but error prone, and the pressure of building to exact specs for a real client is unfair to a new woodworker.)

They were most happy to look it over, and one of the students spoke up; he wanted to build our crate. Note that the plans I drew up did not include any gimmickry. When he delivered it, I took apart the one piece needing modification, and rebuilt it with my gimmick in place. My time invested? About 30 minutes!

In return, I paid for the materials, and I had a small brass plaque engraved to commemorate the student's work. It is attached now to the crate. It lends authenticity to the effect because we can legitimately tell our audiences who the builder was, and it really sets the tone for the effect.

Total cost? $66, plus $30 for the small plaque. The crate is made from high quality aspen, with all brass fixtures and screws. It rivals pieces built by professional studios, and it was carefully handcrafted to my exact specifications by a student who was passionate about woodworking, and he had the opportunity to create a piece for "the real world." My out of pocket expense was exactly $97.50, including sales tax on the plaque.

I don't suggest using the local vocational school as your own slave labor force, but for very specific projects, it is an ideal situation.

Yes, my ultimate goal is to end up with some large stage tricks. I am willing to build but am not fantastic at woodwork, so I was also looking for guidance in which tricks to leave to a professional.
Nick

I was just wandering if the Osborne sub trunk uses a t** t***. This is the method I would reqire for a version of it I wish to attempt.
Nick
Message: Posted by: GuySavoie (Mar 16, 2005 01:39PM)
Nick -

Yes, it does.

The sub trunk is a good illusion to build early in your building career. The number of moving parts is limited, it is easy to both build a mock up for sizing, and to build. There's no reason you couldn't complete the project, minus your final finish (painting, staining, et.al,) over the weekend.

Until you're really confident with your handiwork, I'd avoid props that have sliding tracks, or require precise dimensions. Examples of trouble areas for the budding illusion builder are the curtain track at the top of the assistant's revenge, sliding rails for Modern Art, bevel bases (which require calculations of compound angles, and accurate cutting processes), The sliding middle panel on a properly built Zig Zag, the sliding mechanisms for Andrew Mayne's ShrinkBoy, etc.

Good first projects, in my opinion, are: sub trunk, tip over box, sword box/sword basket (make your own swords as well!), shadow box.

Good first metalworking projects include: sword making (make a straight Katana style sword for under $10 in less than 20 minutes!), SuperX suspension, flying carpet.

DenDowhy. Now there's a man to ask about just about anything. I can't believe you took the time to list all those. I, for one, thank you for taking the time. Gotta like a guy who will do that for you.

I totally agree, and feel that the Café should in some way recognise Den's efforts. His posts show great effort and it is obvious time has been taken. Not for his own good, but to help others. So I ask the Café to recognise this effort.

In my opinion, a gentleman by the name of Clayton Canvaness (I think that is correct) offers the best subtrunk plans. It includes a video and a workbook with step by step instructions. It is a clever design, and it has a very nice folding t** t***. It is built from 1 piece of 3/4 inch plywood. I have built the Osborne Subtrunk, and this is a much better plan and design.

Brock,

Do you know where we can find these plans you speak of?

Also, I have a question concerning Paul Osborne's material. Should I buy his smaller books like Classic Illusions and Illusion Systems 1-4, or should I just save some cash and buy the Big Black Book? The Big Black Book seems to be a great value. How much of the material in the smaller Illusion Systems books is contained in the Big Black Book, if any?

Micah

The Big Black Book has many repeats that can be found in the smaller books, I believe I listed them above.

Classic Illusions has a variety of the same illuions but with different design methods, some look easier than others to build. If it is just the Sub Trunk you are looking for go with the Classic Illusions. If you want lots of illusion plans go with the Black Book reprint.

Definately NOT all of those illuions plans in his smaller books are in the black book. My guess would be one or two from each appear in the Black Book. Right now these books are packed away because I am moving stuff around in my house because of the new addition, however, I did do a research on this and wrote it in the cover of my books. and on the pages of my Big Black Book cross referencing them.

The Haunted Illusion book probably has more within the Black Book than any of the others, if I recall correctly.

Go to the first page in this section, and on your browser go to Edit...Find (on this page)... and type in one key word like "trunk" in the "find field" and it will find every Osborne book which has the word "trunk" in it. It should answer your question on which book is better.
Message: Posted by: magictim (Apr 6, 2005 04:24PM)
Has anybody seen Osborne's plans for the aga? I just saw they were added to the plans list. The description says it is a 40" lift and will break down to fit into an suv. Can anyone provide more info? Whether it is electric/hydraulic/man powered?
Message: Posted by: socalmagic (Apr 23, 2005 05:27PM)
Micah,
I just noticed that Clayton posted earlier in this topic. I would try to contact him to purchase his plans. They are very good, and worth every cent.

I have recently aquired the blue prints for the Paul Osbourne Sub Trunk illusion and took a trip to the hardware store where I was only able to locate a Tee Nut.

Does anyone know where I can get a pivot bolt and a sliding bolt?
Message: Posted by: Jazz (Jul 25, 2005 07:52PM)
Dennis and Richard, thanks for the compilations of the illusion lists. They should become a reference source for sure! I also beleive that Osborne plans are not that easy to interpret at first, but after some thorough reviews, they get clearer. (Of course, I never took carpentry at any level!!)

Thanks for all terrific posts!

A BIG thank you to you all!!!

Thanks to all of this I have bought both The Black Book and the Classic Illusions.

Does anybody know were I can find Rand Woodbury´s book with "Jam". Which dealer?



Once again,
Thanks!

I was surprised to see a copy of "Keep the Wheels Turning" on e-Bay last week. More surprising was that it did not sell, apparently not too high a reserve, but no (zero) bids.
I seem to remember an Osborne book of easy-inexpensive illusions in the Mark Wilson vain.
I'm still hoping someone will do a series on building magic, in the style of Wood/ Popular Woodworking articles.
Haunted Illusions has the most bang for the buck. " Bride of the Blades" is a hidden treasure.
Message: Posted by: Starrpower (Sep 18, 2005 11:39AM)
I would like to see more videos/DVDs of the building process. Woodbury is the only one I know of who has done this, and it really helps address questions and problems for builders. Since he's really doing it, on camera, you know it works and isn't just a "pipe dream." I would recommend it very highly.

I have the "Bases and Stairs" video. Are there others out there, either by Rand or others?

The Black Book is a compliation of the Genii Magazine illusion articles from 1980-to 1992 (I think that was the range. Yes, there are a few similar ones and some updated ones, but not many.

The Black Book on Osborne's web site is worth the price. It's about 75 cents per plan. Well worth the price.

Message: Posted by: Dennis Michael (Oct 6, 2005 09:04AM)
Buy Osborne's Black Book, It gives you a variety of illusions and some theory on them. If you like what you read and see, then if you want to focus look at Osborne's Classics or Halloween Illusions.

Then start with the illusion builders theory by Woodbury, Steinmeyer, or Wakeling.

Center Cutting, Dinner for Two, Mignon, New Wave Modern Cabinet, are what I would like to consider to build. Each $25, then I would need to spend $100 for 4.
I would like to ask, which book has these 4 illusions? Then I can have many many illusions more!!! Bargain!

Thanks for the help.

[b]CardFreakHK,[/b]

Classics Vol 1 has New Modern Cabinet plans as well as other Modern Cabinet Plans but the others I don't know or at least remember. If you build one, you can sell it and get your money back for the plans. With Illusions, don't go cheap, or bargain basement, you will lose many times. I know, I lost money going this route. (Every now and then I win, but not often...Alomst like a lottery ticket.)


[b]Serg,[/b]

Most likely, there are Origami illusions which were/are not authorized.

I know this one was patented, so the illusion plans are in the patent office.
http://www.delphion.com/details?pn=USD0345595__
Full plans are not listed, but it clearly means if you build it without authorization, you are subject to legal proceedings.

Hi Seth,

I have a couple of the books but no plans. In the books, the plans are there, but mainly to give you the general idea of the illusion. I would hope that the plans give you a lot more detail. For any of the more complex illusions, I would spend the $25.00 to get the plan kit just to get better details.

Maybe someone else can write and confirm that the plans give you greater details.

Just so you know, Paul's plans aren't much different from the plans in the books.

He reccommends building cardboard mockups and so do I. You can get a much better grasp of the construction before you cut wood.

You need to make the cardboard one as if was wood. If you just use a cardboard box for size, you'll be cheating yourself out of an educational experience.

Any advice as to where to get enough cardboard to build a mock-up for a larger illusion? And what thickness if this is an option?

Message: Posted by: EsnRedshirt (Feb 23, 2006 09:59AM)
SteelLuvMagic, check with department and appliance stores- they'll often let you grab scrap cardboard. Refrigerator boxes are your friend ;) Most corrugated cardboard is thin enough to represent lauan plywood or veneer. Use double or triple thickness for 1/8"-1/4" plywood or thicker. You can also buy 4'x8' sheets of cardboard in any thickness up to an inch or two (though scrap is cheaper.) For metal blades, I'd use a double thickness of cardstock posterboard.

For scrap lumber, check with the foreman on a construction site. It also helps if you've got a friend or relative who's in construction (my brother-in-law is carting a scrapped solid wood door off a site for me to use as a new workbench.)

Wow, this is a great thread- I think I may invest in the Osborne books myself.

This may be a dumb question, but here goes:

When building cardboard mock-ups, I find it tricky to cut straight edges of longer lengths; I typically use a utility knife and a straight edge, which invariably moves or slips, preventing a good, straight edge.

So here's my question: Would it dull a table saw blade to run cardboard through?
Message: Posted by: Jack Murray (Apr 24, 2006 10:40AM)
I use a carbide blade on my table saw to cut aluminum all the time. It should handle cardboard just fine.

I would buy Coreplastic at a sign shop or plastic supply house. It is like cardboard only it has much more strength. It runs about $10 for a 4x 8 sheet and is available in colors also.

Message: Posted by: ClintonMagus (May 3, 2006 10:24AM)
To keep the straightedge from sliding, simply tape it to the cardboard with masking tape or, preferably, painter's tape. Since it's just a mock-up, you're not really worried about whether the tape tears off a bit of the surface.

You could also put a thin layer of rubber cement on the back of the straightedge and let it dry. This would provide a non-slip coating, and it is easily removable.

Message: Posted by: J Sleight (Jun 19, 2006 08:43AM)
If you are looking for a longer strait edge why not get some square tube pipe (which can be as long as a full sheet of wood)and make up a small wooden block with a trimmer blade attatched at the depth of your cardboard (easy to make an adjustable one)and a handle so you can run it along the side of the pipe. Shop fitting suppliers have pipe that does not have rounded corners if you don't like the block idea. A tiny rectangle of double sided tape at each end will stop it moving on cardboard. If you want a long strait edge that will last a lifetime you can make one out of hard wood ( mine is Austrailian jarra ) about 3 inches by 4 inches and the weight alone will hold it in place. Especially if your put the cardboard on the floor and kneel on the wooden strait edge at the time ;-). James

Message: Posted by: Silvio Solaris (Jan 12, 2007 03:31PM)
You don't necessarily need a trap door. A good base is actually more deceptive and fortunately still a very well guarded Illusion secret. There is a Copperfield special where he performs it exactly like that. I think it's called 'After the Show' or similar. This way the audience can look right under the table when it happens. Important though is to match the props with the settings. For example if you have a nice Maplewood De'Kolta Chair you want kind of a matching Table-Base with it like you would furnish your home. ;)

Osborne just meant that you need a way out like a trap door or a DB with a trapdoor or Spandex. I prefer trap door over Spandex because it tends to wear out fairly quick depending on how many times you will perform it. Hope that helps.

I have a question about having someone else build the illusion with plans I purchase. I am probably going to buy the black book, just makes sense. I am also interested in designing and building my own illusions. But for now I just don't have the proper tools to do a professional job.

If I hire a cabinet maker or go to a cabinet making shop, what precautions should I take, if any, to ensure I'm not compromising the rights to the illusion? Does it matter that someone else learns the "secrets" to the plans?

I'm wondering if a contract of "silence" is used in these cases, or if you have most of the work done, but not assembled so as to keep the secret from being revealed.

Message: Posted by: makeupguy (Mar 22, 2007 08:57PM)
The plans are the same plans.. the difference is the size. Paul's single plans are done on 24 x 36 paper.. in true blueprint fashion..

Paul and I have been friends for going on over 20 years.. and I converse regularly with his wife..

The one thing that I find sorely lacking on paul's plans are specifics.. Tips and tricks and things you need to specially pay attention to while building certain props. Also some hardware is very hard to find... Giving the original source would be nice.

Not neccessarily an actual store.. but what it was originally used for. Illusion hardwar hardly ever is actually custom made on the classic props..but often comes from unusal places like boat shops or restaraunt supplies or odd other niches.

Knowing what the hardware was originally used for would be a HUGE timesaver.

However.. since Paul isn't a carpenter.. he probably doesn't know... His background is in desgin and graphics..and he's REALLY good at that. Perhaps he needs a website that takes illusion woodworking tips from builders..
Message: Posted by: Dennis Michael (Mar 26, 2007 03:33AM)
The single plans also has an extended written text about the illusion and the plans are much clearer. Buying the Black book is a good thing, as well as all of his Illusion series.

There is so much more to illusion then just building them. Consider storing them, transporting them, the assistants measurements, are just a few examples of what to do with illusions. I think it was Mark wilson who said I paid for the illusion several times just in storage fees. If I sold it after I was done, think of all the money I would have saved, or something like that!

As for building a guillotine: The Haunted Illusion book is better because there are so many other good illusions in it.

Personally, I don't like home made guillotines, especially the French kind. one slip and it is really off with the head. I could write a booklet on this! I have the Richbark Simplex Head Chopper:

"The Seven Secrets of Illusion Design", is to Illusions, like Friztkee's "Showmanship for Magicians" is to presentation or his "The Trick Brain" is to creativity.

It is a book to understand the mysteries of the "big box" tricks. If you are looking for details plans there are none. If you want to be able to understand how most (some say all) illusions work, then this book helps you by categorizing them into 7 areas. It's worthy of an illusionist bookshelf.

I found it intriguing, interesting reading and because I love illusions, I was not disappointed in it.

If you want to build an illusion, then buy the plan for that illusion. "The Complete Book of Asrah" is different. Even though I own the book, I still bought Osborne's "New Asrah" Plans. In this case the book gave really in-depth study of one illusion, its forms, its methods, and its presentations as well as drawings to build one. The drawings were not as detailed as the plans, but the book explains much more than what comes with the plans. Both together it completes the understanding, of that single plan as well as how to present it.

You won't get that process with, "The Seven Secrets of Illusion Design" just an understanding of how illusions fit into these seven categories and their basic secrets.

I bought one of the Osbourne books because I wanted to build a new Zig Zag and I couldn't find my Harbin Book.

If you already know what you are doing, and can kind of engineer as you go along then the plans in the book are ok.

If you are new to this then definitely buy the individual plans. The books are shrunk down and therefore not to scale. In the case of the Zig Zag there were several key dimensions that I was looking for that the plan in the book didn't provide. On a scale plan I could have just used a scale rule to come up with the dimension. But since these were shrunk down I couldn't do that.

Also get used to Paul's way of dimensions. On the Zig Zag there was a dimension that looked like 17" - because the books are poor copies of the plans - things get a little blurry. Luckily I worked everything out before making my cuts because the 17" really turned out to be 1'7" ( 1 foot seven inches).

But the man is a genius and you can find great inspiration from the books, once ready to build - if you aren't really sure what you are doing - buy the plan also.

I'm not sure when it happened.. but some time ago I made an off-hand comment that Paul Osborne wasn't a carpenter/illusion builder.

I didn't mean that he had NEVER built illusions.. He's actually a skilled carpenter, 2nd generation, with a full shop and warehouse....

What I meant was that he often mentioned that he "had a guy" who did, or helped, him with much of the building that came out of his warehouse. That in no way was meant to imply that "his guy" was the one actually doing all the work.

It would be IMPOSSIBLE for someone with no carpentry skills to have drawn the incredible number of illusions he's drawn.. specifically the original illusions that I grew up with in the 1980's published in Genii.

I worked for Paul for a few years in amusement parks.. and I've never since met anyone so full of wisdom and helpful hints in regard to illuions and performing.

Has Anyone built Osborne's "Blueprinted" illusion (or similar illusions utilizing the same method)? If so, what dimensions did you use on the couple of quarter inch thick gizmos inside? Are they to be simply the same size as the doors of the box? I'd like to avoid having to waste money on gizmos of the wrong size.
Message: Posted by: EsnRedshirt (Jan 21, 2008 02:55PM)
I just ordered Osbourne's Big Black Book in soft cover. I was wondering, though-how legible are the plans? Will I have any problems reading measurements or determining what hardware to use?

Oh- chill, an incredibly quick way to make steel stage swords (i.e. not sharp, but look and sound good in a stage fight) is to use 1/8" or 1/4" strip steel, chop it to the desired length, and cut the end to a point using a miter saw with a grinding/cutting blade. Cut the steel about 5-6" longer than needed to accommodate your handle (or 12" or more for a 2-handed version.) You've got two options for the handle- Option 1 is to just wrap it in black tape; quick and dirty, it's great for when you need a ton of these (such as for a sword box.) Option two is to cut a closet rod or other thick dowel to the proper length, then cut it in half. Drill holes through both halves and the steel, then bolt all three together with the steel in the center. All that's left is to polish the steel to a shine. There's your fast blades. They are heavy, though- practice like crazy if you're using them for stage combat, because they can do damage if they hit you.

I have several of Osborne's plans, and find them legible and clear. However, I have a background in detailed modeling, so I had no problem interpreting them. I also have one of his books on illusions, (not his black book) and although not as detailed as his plans, he does include dimensions and illustrations that I think anyone with some construction ability would be able to build them. Osborne covers so many illusions, and each one can be custom built to their own specs.

Wow, You guys are full of information. Maybe I can add a little advice. I built the Asrah base and was shopping around for the form, because building the form from the plans seem a bit impossible. I finally came up with the idea of using chicken wire. I know it sounds crazy, but it's light and made of fine wire. I borrowed a mannikin from a friends dress shop, and you wouldn't believe how well chicken wire forms! Sure it doesn't fold like the expensive ones, but with a little bit of flat black paint and the right lighting, the effect is great. I spent more on the rigging than I did on the form!
Message: Posted by: makeupguy (Feb 8, 2008 12:54AM)
The problem with chicken wire.. as you'll find out.. is that it will snag your cloth every chance it gets.. and the formability is also your UNdoing.. it's too soft.

Real asrah forms are made from heavy piano wire... sure it's a pain.. and hard to deal with. but the seams and edges are SMOOOOOTH...

I have a lot of osbourne plans but I have to say his "smoke chamber" plans leave ALOT to be desired. No measurements, no info, just a nicely drawn picture of the thing. Skypoint, maybe your background gives you an advantage over those of us who need more help or info, would you agree? I have no background in models so his plans leave a lot to be desired from my point of view.

For 25.00$ I think I'd like some measurements or additional info. I mean it was just an exposed view of the chamber shown in the ad without the exposed view.
This I could have figured out without the 25.00$ "blueprints".

The exposed view just shows someone hiding in the base. This was not very helpful
at all. I was really dissapointed in these plans.

I would say I am an intermediate builder, but even for an expert, building the smoke chamber from these plans would be a huge challenge with no measuerments or
more detailed drawings. I ended up just using it for inspiration but I'm not sure it was worth the 25.00$ Actually I don't think these plans are worth a dime since
they are little or no help on how to actually build the thing as he shows it.

I have never seen a smoke chamber base in real life that looks even close to the base in these plans. It was like nice idea but forget actually building it to scale since no measurements were supplied, no details that would allow you to build the base as it was pictured. This is unfortunate because the base he shows
in his plans looks so much better than most flat boring smoke chamber bases I have seen in real life and performance.

He should have broken it down, shown you the MANY components or parts that make up the base and provided measurements. Had he taken the time to give you more detailed exploded views, it would have been much more helpful. I think a lot of his plans are like this. Good for inspiration and ideas, but forget buying the plans and building the thing as the plans show.

Its a tough thing, figuring out how to deceptively hide a person in this base, and I don't think he ever built one himself, and if he did, he kept the methods and details of this high tech and great looking base largely to himself, something that's not right if your selling people a "how to" guide to building it.

Many of his other plans are shown to scale and include measurements and more detailed info. Still, I love his drawings and they are very inspirational and informative as to how to go about it. I get pumped up just looking at them, and so maybe that alone IS worth the money. How much does it cost to inspire you to take
your tools out and BUILD a grand illusion? I guess in hindsight I got my 25.00$ worth because I did get inspired and motivated enough to actually build a smoke
chamber. that's a prop some sell for 5,000$ or more that I built for a few hundred bucks and some time, and even though my base is different, it still looks *** good and works great.

I guess I'm torn. I mean I can look at most illusions and figure out the method.
If I am paying money for the plans, I'd like more details. Many of his plans just
artistically reveal the method to you and leave you on your own as to how to
actually build it and make it work.

Maybe I should just visit my friend above me there...Dennis's library, he has all those great big books full of osbourne plans and others that will make you feel like peeing your pants from excitement. I can't hang out in his magic room for fear of peeing in my pants. Dennis has the best library on magic and illusions I've ever seen in my life. I'd really move into his house if he'd let me :)

That kind of inspiration really is priceless, I suppose. I'd say you should find a friend like Dennis,who already has the plans for something you want to build.
Look them over. If you can actually use them, buy them and give the designer his
well deserved couple of bucks, if not, look elsewhere until you can find plans you can actually follow.

I will say, when I decided to do a sawing illusion piece, I used ALL his plans for ideas and inspiration, but then went in some radical directions. Still, the methods shown for his thin model sawings and buzz saw illusions helped me with ideas and inspiration.

If you need ideas and inspiration I'm all for his plans, but if you actually want
plans to build a specific piece you may have to look elsewhere also. Maybe I'm just not a good enough builder yet, but I think others have had the same problems when trying to work from his "plans".

Osbourne plans alone I don't think can really get the job done, but this is just my own opinion and experience, having built many illusions so far. I say they are good starting points towards your intended goal. Again, this is just one man's opinion.

Steven
Message: Posted by: EsnRedshirt (Jul 28, 2008 02:18PM)
Steven,

All of Osbourne's plans are drawn using an architect's scale, so the measurements are there, just not written out plainly. At any rate, since most illusions should be custom built to fit the assistant, any measurements supplied would need to be modified. (I'm guessing my 6'0" 200lbs body would have a tough time using a smoke chamber built for a 5'5" 160lbs performer. This is why so many of us recommend building a mockup out of cardboard first.)

And- like you said, the plans themselves are inspiring. I'm planning on picking up some new blueprints, just to give me a springboard for my own ideas. I'd rather figure out materials and cutting information myself, anyway- those will vary depending on measurements, and I could probably add some improvements that will suit my style. I find it nice to have plans to work from, though- it gives me a reality check- as in, "Yes, I'm not the only one who thinks this idea will work..."

There are few if any plans out there that are 100% correct.. and spot on on 100% of the measurements even if they are correct in everything else.

Illusion building is 80% technical.. and 20% art... and another 5% just tinkering in most cases.

The majority of Paul's Plans are wonderful. He's owned nearly all of the props at one time or another and many of his plans are measured right off the prop in his warehouse.

What I wish is that someone would come out with a "Tips and Tricks" book.. that lists some of the unusual hardware (especially a source for the lazy susan for the twister head box).. and a source for things like rollers, worm drives for levitations, sliders for the zig zag.. and some of the unusual things that people have figured out.. but most people haven't.
Message: Posted by: Magic Kevin (Jan 5, 2009 06:52PM)
I agree with makeupguy. I wish someone would come out with a Tips and Tricks book as well. Also, a video where someone literally shows you the WHOLE process of building an illusion included with the plans would be helpful for a beginner. I know, it would be long but some things like waiting for paint to dry would be removed but they would display a short screen saying "wait 3 hours." I know most of you will say that we should be original when building our illusions so that we all don't have the same exact things, but for the beginner it would be very helpful.
Message: Posted by: EsnRedshirt (Jan 6, 2009 11:35AM)
MagicKAmazinG- there's the Dennis Loomis Doll House DVD which goes fairly in depth. I've got it, and recommend it. And one of these days, I'm even going to build the illusion...

The problem with providing exact measurements on plans is that illusions should pretty much be built around the assistant, and most assistants have different measurements. A frequently recommended piece of advice is to build a mock-up from cardboard to adjust the measurements before building the final illusion.

-Erik
Message: Posted by: Magic Kevin (Jan 10, 2009 10:40PM)
Right, I understand that each assistant is different, but a DVD showing everything from square one, planning, getting materials, cutting the wood, routing, drilling, painting, finishing, and more would still be helpful. I think you get the point. It is just that I would rather have too much information than too little. A even mock-up building segment should be included as well. When you say the Dennis Loomis Doll House DVD goes fairly in-depth, what exactly do you mean. I actually was thinking of building a subtrunk, but how easy is a doll house to make compared to a subtrunk. Obviously, if you really want the doll house look the painting is going to be very in depth. Does Loomis show all the steps to it and really show you how to construct it, finish it, and everything? Even, if I don't construct the doll house, I think though it still might help me better understand some building techniques.

I have the Illusion Systems from Paul Osbourne and it is very helpful, except I wish the plans were more detailed. Do you suggest the Rand Woodbury illusionworks volumes? Also, I have worked with wood before and know how to use the tools, but I am not so sure how practical it would be to just as a first project, build a subtrunk or another illusion. Maybe everyone should try to compile a list of some beginner projects progressively working towards a bigger illusion. What do you think about the "Seed Money Box" in the illusion system 1 book? Would that be good to try out? Wow this is getting a bit long and overwhelming, better stop here. :)
Message: Posted by: makeupguy (Jan 12, 2009 06:37PM)
If you can find them.. get the rand woodbury books AND DVD's.

In order to put out a DVD with a "start to finish" complete illusion.. you'd have to almost teach all the basic woodworking to go with it.. let alone design philosophy, exterior decorating.. and lord knows what else. I can imagine that a single DVD, taught by someone who's as thorough as I am.. would be about 30 volumes long.

If you're not experienced enough a performer AND wood/metal worker to build a basic illusion.. you should probably buy one or two built by a decent builder.. that alone can teach you LOADS and LOADS.

I was lucky. I worked for Paul Osborne for 3 years.. and in the process worked with about 20 major illusions by virtually every builder in the biz. Martin Eldrige (who used to build some of the best stuff in the biz.. but is out of business), David Mendoza (who's attention to the detail and the durability of his illusion is legendary), to Paul Himself, (also built to LAST and LAST).. to Chalet and more.

All of them had pro's and cons. I wasn't afraid to sometimes make SIGNICANT changes to the illusions to make them more practical for me.. or to make them easier to perform 3 to 11 shows a day.. six to seven days a week.

in the meantime.. the Dennis Loomis Dollhouse plans are pretty amazing..

Thanks for your reply! So, if I really want to get started I should buy the Woodbury books and DVD's. Do you think the DVD's alone are a good start, because the books I think are a bit more? I guess I understand why someone can't really make a complete guide to building illusions, but it sure would be helpful. Do you have any really good woodworking or even exterior design books you would recommend? I definitly have no experience with metal working, but I do have some experience with woodworking, which gets to my other question. Is there some smaller illusion that would be a good first illusion for anyone like me? Preferably something that only uses wood (and obviously a finish of some sort.) For someone like me who is still in high school, but very interested in stage illusion it is a bit hard to buy illusions from well known builders. I small close-up or even stage trick is not too much of a problem, but a whole illusion is just a little expensive for a student like me. Even if I did get an illusion I would learn a lot about its structure and its obvious construction techniques, but I wouldn't know how they did the finishing touches and very inner details.
Message: Posted by: makeupguy (Feb 28, 2009 12:07AM)
Here's my suggestion..

Build someting that has a beginning midddle and end..

That is.. Not a vanish or an appearance..

One of my first illusions was a crystal casket.. and once I made my assistant appear.. my next trick was.. the square circle or the tricky bottles?

I had a lot to learn.. fortunately.. I did. Mostly from working for Paul.. who to this day I think is an occasional genius.

First I did not receive the books for a long time and had to write back to him. They came back saying that they are going to send the books again as it seemed that the first mail was lost. I got the three books after quiet sometime and the signatures were not there. I see no point in buying the books from the author who will not sign it for you. Best is to buy it from who you get it cheaper as the sending cost is charged on to you. Specially if the books are costing USD 165. I was disappointed.

The Tool Kit could be expanded and require much more than listed. Terry Evanswood has a large packing case with drawers of tools and parts, for just about any problem that occurs.
The Shadow Boxes provides a lot of notes from major illusionist. As a matter of fact, many of the illusions in this book provides notes from the pros.

This is a sticky post because it lists plans for Illusions.
A sticky post means it is permanently on top.
With over 45,000 reads, it is a very popular topic, hence it top line status.

As for Osborne, he does have the most plans, however, others are also listed in this topic.

There are quite a few readers, who appreciate these listings.

Hi Thayne,
The illusions in the Osbourne plans are mainly classics. I have had several built and all the magicians I know that have built illusions from the plans don't use them anymore. They are all in good condition and a good deal for a stage magicians that perform illusions.

Message: Posted by: Charles (Nov 21, 2011 08:09AM)
I know this thread is old; however I just wanted to mention without discouraging anyone. If you
are considering building and construction any illusion here are a few things you will need to know.

1) Illusion building involves wood working, mechanics and finishing.
2) The mentioned skill sets are equal to learning how to perform magic.
3) If a door on a box does not hang correctly due to improper installation, telling your audience "don't mind the door" is no excuse for poor workmanship.
4) Bottom line, building a cardboard mock up is not the same as building in wood and metal.
5) Osbourne Books are a great resource for ideas, however they do not give you detail construction techniques on assembly.
6) Do take the time to learn proper shop safety. I have seen and heard horror stories about magicians attempting to build their own illusions to save money, only to find themselves in the emergency room at the local hospital due to improper use of a tools.
7) Illusion building is not as easy as DYI. Illusion builders stretch the common construction techniques to more advanced levels.
8) If you are not a builder, you will waste more time and money than if you saved and purchased an illusion made by a professional builder.
9)Understanding how an illusion is done, does not necessarily give you an understanding on how it is built.
10) Before you start a project, complete a bill of materials with prices. Include everything down to the nails, screws and sandpaper.
11) You will have to store the illusion, do take this into consideration. Storage that is not temperature controlled will result in nature taking it's course. Wood will warp, paint will peel, ohh and... pests will build nests, where your assistant will hide.

[b]Paul Osborne's Holiday Illusions[/b]

22 Illusions taken from the Pages of GENII Magazine

If you want to do a Mall Magic Show, or produce Santa from an Illusion then this is the book to get!
As Paul Osborne said:
[quote]

This collection of 22 illusion plans taken from the pages of Genii Magazine and themed to the holiday season is a great resource for the performer who wants to add some seasonal flavor to their presentation. Featured are illusions that produce Santa Claus, create a classic Dickens scene, make Frosty come alive, make Christmas trees and elves appear and even a beautiful Snow Queen.[/quote]

There are seasonal twists on the Fraidy Cat Rabbit, Slick Post and the Enchanted Doorway as well as Hippity Hop Rabbits, 20th Century Silks, Run Rabbit Run and the Card Castle, all drawn and described by Paul Osborne. Many illusions are easy to build and we give you full scaled drawings, painting guides and scripting ideas. Illusions contained in this one-of-a-kind publication are:
[list]
[*] Here Comes Santa Claus: Produce Santa From A Sled inside a Toy Bag.
[*] 5 Days of Christmas: Produce Santa From a Box (Like the Doll House trick)
[*] Santa Screens: Produce Santa From Screens instead of Cards.
[*] Home for the Holidays: A Classic Blackstone Method of Instant Holiday Scene
[*] Santazamm!: Produce Santa From a Christmas Tree

[*] Santa Shack: Produce Santa From a Holiday looking house similar to a Door Production
[*] Yule Tied: It's Like a Post Escape with a Christmas Tree Design

[*] The Great Santa Switch: Santa and Assistant Switch
[*] Santa Surprise: Produce Santa From Three Folding Screens
[*] Candy Castle: Production of A Candy Castle, like Card House.

I Loved this Illusion Book! Also I love all of Paul Osborne's books and Illusions.

[/list]

plus a few thoughts and inspiration
Message: Posted by: Dennis Michael (Nov 25, 2011 05:09AM)
The above two books are "must haves" for the person who loves Illusions and creative thoughts on Illusions.

When you study illusions you can be creative and design your illusion based on illusion designs.

I will second what Charles said above about Building Illusions.

In addition to the Illusion, you must think of transportation, and Storing it. One generally doesn't considering how to get the illusions to the various locations. So you need t truck too!

It's really nice to dream of these illusions, however, if one is serious, then one needs a wood shop or access to one. In my case, I have a wood shop, woodworking experience and a trailer to store the illusions. I am also mechanically inclined but weak on finishing abilities, (Painting)

So for anyone who has built this, could you kindly answer the following:

Say I was building this from scratch, the dimensions of the 'little room' that the action takes place ought be what?

How close can the audience be? How much further back ought they be from the lamp post and curtain? Could the room be built a bit 'deeper' allowing people to look through glass at the action? (for a shopping mall)

Paul Osborne just released The Illusion Paradigm.

"This book is designed for the creator, builder, performer and student of illusions. Andrew Mayne talks about creating illusions, Eric Olsen and John Uhern of EDS help you set up your own garage shop. Craig Dickens and Tim Clothier discuss building tips and Rich Hill gives you plans for a deceptive base. The builder will learn about working with aluminum, plastic laminates, plexiglass and epoxy. Craig Beytien provides tips on finishing an illusion and Taylor Reed discuses routining your show. Tim Clothier shows you how to order an illusion and gives you plans for an all new, never-before-seen illusion. These are the superstars of illusion building and performing with invaluable tips for anybody interested in illusions: Paul Osborne, Craig Dickens, Taylor Reed, Tim Clothier, Eric Olsen, John Uhern, Bruce Chdwick, Andrew Mayne, Craig Beytien, Rich Hill, Brad Holden and Thom Rubino."

This looks like another good book with some great resources. I know there was a copy of an email from Paul Osborne floating around the forum about him working on Illusion Systems book 5, and I think this is it. This is going on my Christmas list.

If you're new to building illusions and you don't have a lot of experience in the shop or building stage props illusion systems book #1 covers a lot of the basics such as sizing props and fitting allusions to your assistance. Another great book for building magic from the technical side is an old book called the new makeup of magic. I believe it was published by magic ink years ago it is full of useful tips for the shop such as finishing working with metals even screen printing.

Dennis, thanks for all the updates to this thread over the years. I got Osborne Books 1-4 way back when they were new. Many years ago, like an idiot, I sold them. I just ordered his three Classic Illusion books last night.

Here are some questions for you.

1) The Holiday Illusions book taken from the pages of Genii - Are those illusions also included in his Big Black Book which were also taken from Genii?

2) I'm not into any kinds of scary or haunted type illusions - I do a lot of for kids 4 to 12 plus my act is more comedy oriented. So, his Halloween book, EVIL Illusions book and Haunted Illusions book are, at first blush, of no interest to me. However, my question is whether there are some non theme-related clever ideas and designs in those books that are not found in his other books, or are these mostly traditional illusions re-themed for those purposes?

Thanks!

Id be happy from anyone who knows more-and feel free to discuss other illusions and how their titles emanated.

My response:
Given the history as you mention it, I would never call that illusion Stocks of Zanzibar. However, I'm considering that illusion as an alternative to a sub trunk. In my 20s I built a sub trunk, but sold it and it is being used to this day. But at 54 and arthritis in both hips (thanks to 11 years of [American] football), I no longer have an interest in the sub trunk. I have the Osborne plan for Assistant's Revenge, but the Stocks illusion is smaller and more transportable. The theme could easily be the "stocks" that were used in early American colonial days which were in the public square and used to punish people via public embarrassment.

Many of them are, however quite a few are not.
I downloaded all of them and offered Genii them, and they declined in favor of "If someone wants them, they have to do what you/I did." It means more money for genii, I guess.

That is a tough question, especially since I love all the haunting illusions.

What nice about all of Osborne's books is that there are many clever ideas to learn from and one could design their own, from that knowledge gained.

Thanks!

Actually, I answered my own question. I got a list online of the contents of the two Owen books and the Wels book. It seems that with very few exceptions, everything in the Wels book is also in the Owens books (mostly Book 1). The total cost of the two Owens books combined is more than triple the cost of the Wels book, but they contain a lot more stuff. Anyway, that's what I found. I had the Wels book about 20 years ago and foolishly sold it.

Has anyone made an index of Osborne's Genii plans? I did start one but the Genii archives seem to be intermittently functional.

The Genii Archive works without problem, though the search function is not operating properly. That should be fixed when we move to a new internal platform this year.

Just to clarify, what I meant is that the web viewer functions normally until I try to go back to reading an issue normally after viewing a search result, which prevents anything from working. For some reason it has trouble switching back to the normal viewer and everything breaks.

Just Google 'Walmart', when you get to their site enter 'illusion plans' in their search bar and bingo up they come; the most closely guarded illusion secrets being sold alongside toilet rolls and turnips.

Is the Magic Tables in "Kidtrix" the plan for the Owen Elephanthead Tables ?

What a shame. Everything and anything has become an exploit for a quick dollar.

It looks to me that the Wal-Mart website has made themselves another Amazon competition. I ordered a computer motherboard from them years ago. It is hard to find products that Wal-Mart actually sells in their stores. Nowhere do they explain how they list other companies and peoples products. I tried to order a music CD online not long ago, and it would never go through or take my order. So I am not sure it is a real website for Wal-Mart. Very strange, what is going on with them.

Hey Friends,

My team has trying to create this illusion from the blueprints we bought from Osborne's site. However, the platform on the blueprints are really confusing.

Can someone please help us that knows how to operate this effect? It would be much appreciated.

Wow! Walmart again! I just bought an appearing candle from walmart.com and it is a genuine fantasio! As an aspiring illusionist who is wanting to learn more, I find there is a lot of sour grapes toward others who either build or buy from sources like China magic and Walmart. I would like to state that in fact, the real culprit of such infringement is capitalism, the love of money, and government systems of oppression and authority. The only way to live is to earn money. the only way to earn money is to sell your time, art, creations. this then breeds others to sell the same thing to make money and copy others that have done the same. I would not be angry at an individual artist who ascertains their props from these sources, yet would find it as an eye opener to what is wrong with humanity in general. Why do we have to have systems of money, oppression, and control?
In my opinion, when you market a creation you have released it to be duplicated by others who were inspired by it. This is just the way it is. If magic and the secrets of the builds and effects were to stay guarded they would need to remain within a small circle and passed down by the creator to the apprentice. This has been discarded due to the need for money to survive. On the other hand, what good is a masterpiece if it is never seen by anyone?
Imagine an artist like Rembrandt or Picasso never allowing the public to see their paintings! Absurd. I blame humanity's greed and the need for money to survive and those who market their original ideas for profit as the main culprit. Alas, I am an oxymoron and hypocrite as well so take that for what it is.

Congratulations FasciN8, you're one post closer to the 50 mark to get access to the secret area. Again with a post "off topic" because this thread is about Paul Osborne illusions...

Regarding the content of your post, instead of blaming the creators who market their ideas, please lead by example, share YOUR OWN ORIGINAL ideas for free, all the magic community is waiting for such a brilliant mind inspiration.
