Has anyone ever made their own Gozinta Boxes? I would like to build an illusion sized Gozinta box and I could use some help on the proportions/ sizes. Any direction would be appreciated.

If you have the small version just work the dimensions up!

FWIW (Not much!)

Sorry, but the system will probably not work due to a lack of stability.

Try to figure out why the Gozinta-boxes-principle is possible.
If you really understand it, you would not have asked this question.

Doug Henning performed a version. So it can be done.

Five sided box, a little baltic birch, some right angle aluminum, screws and epoxy. Not a real big deal, reasonably stable. Decide on the size, remember that they are oblong, and start sketching. As Stanyon said, get the proportions, really draw it out, and scale it up.

I do not really know why you would want to though; even the small one is not that striking a trick, more of a puzzle. There are a lot better illusions you might construct.

I think it works because one of them is red.
