I personally think Mohammed Bey's routine is one of the most fun routines I have worked out (though there are many I have not had the chance to check out). I have changed it a bit but over all I keep true to the main steps.
As for the box, I use a little candy tin from a French candy called Fruities, I found them at Tower Records here in New Orleans. It is about the size to fit silver dollars and helps me to avoid another "prop looking" thing.
I have seen many great looking boxes but they all end up looking like what they are...props purchased at a magic shop.

Just my two pennies

I'll cast my vote for Mike Powers' Boston Massacre Routine. I saw him do it at a recent lecture and it's a thing of beauty

A Nearly Normal Idea...

Recently while playing with my dollar and half dollar boxes I came up with something..very new and undeveloped.

3 large chinese coins(thanks Larry B.) in the big box
3 half dollar coins in the smaller ones..

large box with coins in the right hand
smaller one in the left.

Boxes are switched in position...
that is large is placed in the left hand
smaller is placed in the right hand..

You are probably way ahead of me on the outcome..

The halfs are now in the dollar sized okito box and the
dollars are dumped out of the half dollar size...

food and coins for thought for you
thanks for all your sharing...

Oh what fun it is to play and create....or rediscover most of the time..

I have heard of the cool new boxes from T.L. I was getting his stuff before he was a household name.

Thanks, Andre. (Though it just uses a normal Okito box)

One of the best Boston Box routines out there, IMHO, and one you could start right away, is on Tom Stone's recent DVD, Caught on Tape (even though its a DVD). The routine has a weird name - Monty Walks Again. Simple method, but great routine.

If someone has mentioned this already please forgive me. In vol.II of The Collected Works Of Alex Elmsley there is a boston box routine in there.

Michael Skinner (About 12 years ago) showed me his handling for the Elmsley routine. Very nice routine worth checking out.

I can't believe Dean Dill's hasn't been mentioned. His is excellent with the box made by Jamie Schoolcraft. Go to http://www.deandill.com

Another coin box routine I can recommend is Ramysay Okito Box routine, although in his dvd which represent by Andrew Galloway, using big coin box. I played around a little bit with normal okito box, and it can be done.

Cheers
Andre

PS: Doug, love your new dvd. I expect another beautiful spectator though Smile

There is a demo in his website
