I have really freaked out people with my Floating Table, yes it requires a little help, its a heavy repro victorian mahogany circular
3 legged table, I get six people to put there outstretched hand flat onto the table top,alongside my own hand, in a similar same manner as the David Berglas effect, except I join in with them, as a convincer.
I copied Berglas's idea of getting them all to drum there fingertips onto the table top.When that table rises up four feet in the air, and then I remove my hand from it, and it stays suspended mid air, WOW, an awesome effect that knocks people out, and they never ever work it out.
I love this one.

The ultimate is being able to make it waltz across the floor in the hands of the assisting spectators without any help Smile

And that is what I have been looking for resources about. No luck yet.

I seem to remember a Kreskin episode that had table turning/sliding/walking on it. He had 6 or 8 folding card tables set up on stage and had audience members come down and 4 or 5 around each table with just finger tips resting atop the tables. By the end of the segment tables were spinning and sliding all over the stage.

If you have NetFlix I believe it is on one of 3 DVDs.

Cheers

A link here to YouTube clip of David Berglas performing the Floating Table, this has to be the best ever version of this effect.

I'm currently reading "Buckland's Book of Spirit Communications". There is a chapter just on table tipping/floating. A few interesting pictures. I just quickly skimmed that chapter, and have yet to get into in depth, but it does cover some of the methodology used.

I'd be remiss if I didn't suggest that you check out Bob Cassidy's Seance CD/Teleconference. He goes into table tipping/sliding and some tips to make it more effective.

The Berglas floating table is a very nice trick. But in looking at that clip was amazed by something. I always thought the English were very proper people, and yet there are only two men at that table wearing jackets. They are right across from each other at the table. As I say, this surprised me. I was much less surprising to see only two Americans wearing coats when Copperfield did the trick.

For around $40.00 (if I recall correctly) Stevens Magic (gesh, they need to start paying me a commission for all the plugs I give them) has a very cool "device" that permits you to actually levitate a table... it's very cool and loads of fun if you have any level of imagination.


Does anyone know what this device was and where to get it?
Steven's Magic doesn't seem to have it anymore. Is anyone able to PM me with what the device was?”
Cheers
