Oriental "Peek" Die Box

Large 4 inch block!

Oriental Peek Die Box
Oriental Peek Die Box

Similar to the classic Sucker Sliding Die Box, the "Peek" Die Box has some unique features that make it really different!

A large 4" oriental block is placed into the box, and the usual antics take place. The audience can hear the block sliding back and forth in the cabinet with a loud clunk. The block continues to elude the audience and the magician. That is until someone spots the block hiding in the other side. Of course, you the magician have allowed them to "accidentally" peek at the block!

Ultimately, the block vanishes completely and reappears elsewhere!

Unlike other more common Die Boxes, the "Peek" Die Box has no center wall, no sliding weight, and no double doors! In fact if you wanted to, you could pass the box for examination at the beginning of the trick! There is nothing to find.

Finished in black and gold with detailed scroll borders and full color images. Velvet lining in both the box and gimmick. Instructions included.

Card Dice

Hand-crafted by Michael Baker

Card Dice
Card Dice

Effect: Six cube dice are shown. They each have portions of playing cards on their faces. The dice are stacked so that they show a random display of those card parts. The stack can be shown on all sides. The faces are indeed scrambled with a variety of playing card parts depicted. The stack is then covered with a handkerchief.

Two playing cards are then selected from a deck and their faces kept unknown for the moment. Upon disclosing the stacked dice again, one side has transformed to match the first selected card. The stack is then covered again to accommodate the other selected card, and when revealed a second later, it shows a scrambled display of random card parts. This is an apparent failure on the part of the magician, but when the second selection is shown, it matches the scrambled card display perfectly! Magic with a comedy kicker!

Dice are 1 1/4 inches. Full assembly is the size of a standard playing card.

Box is beautifully finished in rich colors with wonderful oriental images in the style of Okito. Brass hardware.

Comes with instructions, cover cloth, carry/display box, and of course, the dice! You supply a deck of red Bicycle cards.

Slow-Rising Die to Hat

Silk Cabby
Silk Cabby

This item has been in the works for a couple years. Finally with a look and mechanical design worthy of one of our pieces, this is being offered in a VERY limited number to the magic community.

A decorated block (die) is placed into a small cabinet. The front door of the cabinet is opened allowing a clear view of the block inside. A hat is placed mouth up atop the cabinet. While holding the cabinet (and hat) up in front of him, the magician commands the block to rise. Very visibly, the audience sees the block rising straight up, and it appears to be penetrating both the top of the cabinet and the hat. Once the block can no longer be seen in the cabinet, it is revealed that the block has indeed come to rest INSIDE the hat!

Magician has full control of the speed of the rising block.

Size: Approximately 5"x5"x5"... Block is 3".

... a beautiful prop!

Comes complete with detailed, illustrated instructions. You supply your own hat.

These have all sold!

Time & Again - The watch cabinet

New! - Large size for stage!

Watch Cabinet

The watch that vanishes and reappears!

This is based upon a trick once sold by Mazda Magic as, "Watch Out".

Effect: The front door of the cabinet is opened to reveal a large watch hanging from a hook. The watch is removed, the door closed and the cabinet set aside. The watch is held at the fingertips and tossed toward the cabinet where it instantly disappears! The cabinet door is opened and the watch is seen hanging once again from the hook!

Beautiful classic colors and gorgeous full color decals in an oriental theme. The large watch is almost 4 inches in diameter and very showy for stage, but can easily be done in a parlour setting.

Comes with instructions.

Only one available!

Small size of our regular Tea Canister Mystery!

Mini Tea Canister Mystery

Mini Tea Canister Mystery

This is a smaller version of the Okito Tea Canister Mystery, as can be seen elsewhere on this page.

Like the larger version, the trick is focused upon a magical transportation, but also finishes with a surprise production.

The effect is as follows…

A decorative tea canister, approximately 5” high is shown. A small item is borrowed from the audience, and placed into the tea canister, as witnessing proof as to what is about to happen.

Also seen, are two tubes, each about 7" high, large enough to completely cover the tea canister. Their emptiness is demonstrated by passing the tea canister through each of them, as well as allowing a view through them.

The tea canister is covered with one of the tubes, while the other is set a short distance away. Upon command, the tea canister is suddenly seen in the previously empty tube. A magical transposition! The canister is opened and the borrowed item inside is verified and given back to the owner.

To allay suspicion, the other tube is now lifted, and it is revealed to contain a small cordial glass, which may be filled with liquid, if desired.

The tubes are again shown to be empty.

... a beautiful set!

Tubes, canister and gimmick are metal. Beautiful oriental images give this set a true feel of class and excellence. All pieces nest for storage or travel.

STATIC SHOCK!

Static Shock

Effect: The performer suggests an experiment with wooden stick matches. He removes a few from a box and stands the box cover in an upright position. Atop this cover he places one of the matches so that it lies across the box cover and overhangs the edges.

Taking a second match, he begins to carefully rub the head on the table. He then slowly brings the head of that match close to the head of the match atop the box cover. Suddenly with a pop, the balanced match jumps wildly into the air, as if propelled by a jolt of electricity.

Attempting to do this again, the experiment fails. Finally, with one more attempt, the procedure is followed again, but this time instead of the balanced matchstick, the drawer full of matches, that is sitting on the table explodes with a loud pop, throwing matches out of the box and scattering them about the table.

The audience will jump more than the matches!

This can be played as telekentic powers, spirit manifestations, scientific demonstration, or however you choose to cloak it!

Self-contained. Comes with instructions and everything you need.

Please Note: Due to federal shipping regulations, matches are considered a hazardous material and cannot be shipped. You should buy any standard box of wooden matches and use them to fill the supplied, matchbox.

Skeleton (or Zombie) in the Coffin!

Skeleton in the Coffin
Zombie in the Coffin

This is our spin on the Skeleton in the Closet. Despite repeated attempts to construct a skeleton (or zombie) in the proper order, the blocks continue to rearrange themselves in a most spooky manner! Finally, one block vanishes and ends up back with the rest of the body!

The blocks are reversible, showing a rotting skeleton on one side, and a disgusting, walking-dead zombie on the other! You can choose which side you want to use in your show!

The tube has a cool three-dimesional rustic coffin facade, rather than just a stenciled design.

The blocks are three inches square. The tombstone device is designed to vanish the head block, and is our own creation. The block is placed inside (yes, it is a solid block with no holes!), the front slide put in place and the solid steel spike driven through the side. Lift the slide panel and the block has disappeared!

Many people are familiar with wire puzzles, and this twisted nail puzzle is no exception. Not knowing the secret, it can take some time to hit on the solution. Even those who have learned the secret will often spend a moment or two remembering how to unlock the nails.

Well, after offering the nails and a small box for examination, the nails are dropped into the box and the lid put on. A mere second later, the lid is removed and the two nails are now separated! It is as if some unknown force, or poltergeist is at work here!

The Spider Box!

Spider Box
Spider Box

Here is a wonderful trick for Halloween, or whenever you want to spread around a little arachnophobia!!

Effect: You show the spider box, claiming to have a very large, but very well-trained spider inside. A card is selected and returned to a deck. The deck is placed into the spider box, and on your command, the lid slowly opens, and the selected card rises up, being pushed up by icky, hairy spider legs!! You may even have several cards selected, and as the first is removed, each of the other cards will rise similarly.

This is very nicely made, and has very cool graphics!! The trick is positively creepy!! You may also, if you desire, begin this before having a card selected, by talking about the spider, and as you do so, the lid is slowly opening with the spider's legs becoming visible. Played as a comedy effect where the audience sees this, but the magician doesn't, will bring many screams. Kids will go crazy over this!!

Any cards may be used. There are no forces, duplicates, and the card(s) may even be signed. Comes with full instructions. You supply any deck of cards.

The B-T-S Vanishing & Reappearing Block!

B-T-S Block Mystery

To those familiar, this is generally considered my flagship item.

The set combines the Len Sewell Block on Rod Appearance with the Baker-Tysl Block Vanish, a co-creation of magic collector Bob Tysl, and me. Up until now, these sets have only been made by commission. Only a few of the world's top magic builder's have made the Sewell effect, and even fewer have done it correctly or with any quality. Among them are John Gaughan and Eric Lewis. I was asked by Bob Tysl to tackle this project several years ago. Although the first couple sets achieved the standard of quality that we wanted, we hoped for a better block vanish to acccompany the set than what had previously been used. After a lot of R & D, we hit on the present block vanish.

The effect is as follows…

Two cabinets are seen. One cabinet resembles an oriental design pagoda. A door on the front opens to reveal a decorative block. The block is locked in the cabinet by a long rod that runs horizontally through both the cabinet and the block. The other cabinet is essentially a box with a lid atop a turned pedestal. There are large holes in the front and back of this cabinet allowing a view completely through the box.

B-T-S Block Mystery
B-T-S Block Mystery

The rod is removed so the block may also be removed from the cabinet. The block may be seen freely, and from any side. The rod is replaced through the empty cabinet, and the door closed.

The block is placed into the box atop the pedestal. It is clearly seen through the large holes. The lid is placed on and still, the block may be seen through the large holes. The lid is then removed for a second, rotated 90 degrees and placed on again. This time, All the large holes are blocked, so the block cannot be seen. Immediately, the lid is removed and the block has vanished! (You may also have the block change to a silk.)

B-T-S Block Mystery

The cabinet with the rod is opened and the block is seen inside the cabinet, THREADED ON THE ROD!!

The appearance is absolutely impossible.

This set is of the finest workmanship. You will not find one available that is better, or more beautiful. It takes a couple months to make one of these correctly.

All colors are coordinated in red, yellow, jade green, gold, and black. As with all products from The Magic Company, the decals are custom made.

The set comes with very detailed instructions and everything you need.

... a beautiful set!

Another Michael Baker exclusive!!

Stunningly beautiful!

Okito Tea Canister Mystery

Okito Tea Canister Mystery

This is one of my favorite projects to have made. It is my spin of a creation of the great Theodore Bamberg, known also as, Okito. A description of this effect may be found in “Okito on Magic”, as well as “Oriental Magic of the Bambergs”, “Illusion Builder to Fu Manchu”, and other books and videos by Dr. Robert Albo.

The trick is focused upon a magical transportation, but also finishes with a nice and sizable production.

The effect is as follows…

A decorative tea canister, approximately 8” high is shown. Various small items are borrowed from the audience, watches, keys, gloves, etc., and these are placed into the tea canister, as witnessing proof as to what is about to happen.

Also seen, are two tubes, each large enough to completely cover the tea canister. Their emptiness is demonstrated by passing the tea canister through each of them, as well as allowing a view through them.

The tea canister is covered with one of the tubes, while the other is set a short distance away. Upon command, the tea canister is suddenly seen in the previously empty tube. The canister is opened and the items inside are verified and given back to their owners.

To allay suspicion, the other tube is now lifted, and it is revealed to contain a turned wooden pedestal with a glass fishbowl sitting atop. The fishbowl may contain water and a live goldfish, if so desired.

The tubes are again shown to be empty.

... a beautiful set!

Superior quality and craftsmanship! Tubes, canister and gimmick are metal. Pedestal is turned from Walnut. Beautiful oriental images give this set a true feel of class and excellence. All parts are precision fit for ease of working. All pieces nest for storage or travel.

Come with instructions and everything you need except water and a fish (if you so desire).

This last set has sold, but I do plan to make a couple more sets. If you'd like to be on that list, let me know.

Oriental Silk Frame and Silk Cabby

Silk Frame & Cabby

The Silk Frame (aka Fantastic Frame) begins with a silk (or 2 or 3) tied around a rod that runs horizontally through the cabinet frame. The silk(s) is removed, the door closed, the silks vanished, and they reappear tied again to the rod.

The matching Silk Cabby is a utilitarian device, with which many tricks are possible. With this, you can make silks appear, disappear, change color, perform blendo effects, and a wide range of other routines. Used with the Silk Frame, it causes the silk(s) to disappear prior to their reappearance in the frame.

The Cabby operates on the pivoting chamber method, and is fitting with tiny bushings on the pivots for a super smooth action.

Both pieces boast beautiful combination of periwinkle blue, black, and gold accented with gorgeous full color decals in an oriental theme.

Both pieces include instructions.

Oriental Confetti to Silks
Oriental Confetti to Silks

A beautifully decorated box filled with confetti along with a tall, open top canister are shown. A few handfuls of confetti are poured into the canister. Very quickly, the confetti changes to a HUGE load of silks.

Tea Chest Nest of Boxes
Tea Chest Nest of Boxes
Tea Chest Nest of Boxes

Not only is this probably the most gorgeous set of boxes you've ever seen, detailed both inside and out, this set is probably one of the most efficient and practical sets ever made. While it should not be performed completely surrounded, the performing angles are MUCH better than many other sets, including the popular Berg style, Gerlitz's Butterfly Boxes, etc.

There are no bottomless boxes, and no separated pieces that must be joined or nested during the process. Issues that cause fumbling with other sets have been addressed, so the loading of the ring is fast and accurate.

The first three boxes have brass catches and satin ribbon ties attached to the box by special brass hardware made especially for these boxes. There are no loose ribbons to lose. The smallest box is locked with a small brass padlock and hasp. It has a ribbon attached to it that is used to lift the box fairly from the box it is in. The spectator may unlock this box.

Each box has a different color combination, and image transfers have been specially designed and applied for a stunning appearance. This set is truly a work of art.

Included are complete instructions and a gimmicked satin brocade cloth for vanishing the ring. Also included is a duplicate ring that may be used for rehearsal.

This will be a rare and desirable set.

4 Wrongs Make A Right

Beautiful, Hand-Crafted Black Walnut!

4 Wrongs Make A Right 4 Wrongs Make A Right

Here is a fun trick that is a novel way to find a selected card!

Have your spectator select a card. After returning it to the deck, you claim that you have 4 chances to find the correct card. Each of your 4 guesses are wrong, and each time, the wrong selections are placed into a wooden frame. After the last failure, you sheepishly place a FOR SALE sign in front of the frame. You ask the spectator what their card was. When you remove the sign, the four wrong selections now show as a jumbo card that matches the selected card!

This is a piece that is more than just functional. It is one that you will proudly display among your finer collectibles! The frame, with its beautifully turned pedestal base are hand-crafted by Michael Baker from American Black Walnut, and finished with hand-rubbed Tung Oil.

Instructions included.

As these are made by hand, the turned spindles may vary slightly from the photo.

Drawer Cabinet
Drawer Cabinet

Wow! What a nice piece this is!! Hand-crafted from Exotic Makore (African Cherry), and finished with hand-rubbed Tung Oil, this is a true combination of art and magic!! The box is large, approximately 12x7x6 inches. It features ornamental feet, quite different than any other drawer box you are likely to find, and a handsome antique brass handle.

The mechanism is smooth and reliable, including a magnetic lock that insures the insert does not accidentally separate from the drawer at the wrong time, but easily releases when you want it to. There is also an inside cleat that prevents the drawer from accidentally being pulled completely out of the cabinet. This is a table, or desk top accessory with a huge load capacity. Can be used at close range, and can be seen in the largest of theaters!

DIE BOX

Handcrafted by Michael Baker of The Magic Company

Black Die Box!!

Unique item. Only one available.

black Die Box

This is a really pretty Die Box, handcrafted by Michael Baker from The Magic Company!

This is the classic Sliding Die Box, black lacquer with gold trim and brass hardware. The gold pinstriping is part of the paint job, and not stuck-on tape. It is on all the doors, the sides and the back. A large three inch red die placed into the box vanishes after a bit of by-play with the audience. It reappears in a hat, bag, or another box.

This Die Box has two doors on top, and two in front. This is the single door style, without the die fake built into the door. The sliding sound and click is loud and clear.

As with all handcrafted products from The Magic Company, this is a piece that you will be proud to use, and display among your finer collectibles.
