Tip: On the side that goes on top use some weights sewed on both ends. (somewhat like magnet disks)

I've got this, and I'm very pleased with it.

And the best part, is that I literally just had to cross the road to the store and I found the right type of bag! and they're awesome. I bought plenty of them actually.

And it folds flat! this is crazy, never thought I could carry a billet box around in my briefcase.

This is a worker!

I really like it too. Now I just a really big audience to use it with....

I did find some smaller boxes but they're not square like the big one so they're not quite as good. The big ones are really ideal but they're definitely a little out of place for a smaller audience.

Yes, the small ones have this problem, they are not perfectly square... so the inside bottom piece does not fit perfectly when making the gimmick but a little bit of cutting and sewing and there you go!

Yep, I worked out a solution too, though I do feel like the larger one is better.

My box is about 9"x 9" x 9", it's small (perfect for small audiences) and it works... it just doesn't work as described in the ebook, as the flap does not automatically fall but I've worked a solution (more of a handling actually) for that, and I love this prop. love it love it love it. If anybody has this problem and would like to hear how I handle this you're more than welcome to send me a pm.

Best,
Ever

I was wondering if anyone could share the rough price of the box needed for this. I'll have to ship it as I live in Asia (Singapore).

I'm currently deciding between this and Luca volpe's version, so any thoughts would help also. Thanks!

In the US you can find the box for only around $5.00 USD
