Ha-ha!! Not sure I need an adopted son. My 18 year old son is here and learning the ropes on building magic. He's doing a great job, too!

Michael,

I have five Moonlight Magic's wands and they are all a sight to behold. Beautiful workmanship that is second to none. Michael Myatt is an expert craftsman and you and he would hit it off immediately.

Thanks to everyone for their kind words. I am in process of making a few more sets, and will add photos here, as they come out.

I should clarify...

I lack the capabilities to shoot, edit, and upload videos efficiently. I am also not a dedicated fan of videos of magic posted on the internet. Additionally, I leave the performance of these pieces to those who own them. I only build these, and only perform magic that I have brought up to what I consider performance level. To attempt this just to show what it does, puts both the effect and the method at risk. A public forum is not the place for that.

I have posted photos of these pieces in "The workshop", for the enjoyment of other magic builders. They are not being advertised for sale via mass consumption. A "demo" is therefore unnecessary.

I hope that doesn't offend anyone.

A brief description of the effect may however be in order...

The block may begin inside the low Pagoda cabinet. It is shown by opening the front door. The block is threaded on the rod which runs horizontally through the cabinet. The rod and block are removed. The rod is replaced and the cabinet closed.

The block is then placed into the box with the large round holes in the front and back. The lid is placed on with the large round holes 90 degrees to those in the box proper. This effectively blocks all openings to see the block inside. The lid is then removed and the block has vanished.

The door of the Pagoda cabinet is then opened, and the block is seen to have returned, THREADED on the rod.

Michael, that looks fabtastic! Did you use the adhesive-backed flocking from Edmunds for the interior lining?

Actually, it was a very similar product that Magic Ref told me about (if I recall, it was from McMaster-Carr). I'd bought both kinds several months ago to experiment, and found them equally good. It just happened to be the roll I was working from when it came time to do this project. The lining is only on the bottom of the box on the pedestal, and the top of it's lid.

I thought it looked like that type of material. I love that stuff!

The prop is absolutely beautiful!

...And here is the latest rendition... same essential apparatus as the others, just different colors by customer request.
