It is one of those get your own stuff and i'll teach you how to do it effects. The method is simple
but the overall construction is genius. I had a theory on how this worked but after learning how the
boxes are made and how convenient it is to use objects that you can find (except the boxes, thats
the hard part) I give it a 4 since i am still on the hunt 4 boxes and i need to do this 4 future

i love this illusion! this is sort of the "poor man's" saw cutting illusion, but it is very cool. i

you need no major expenses.after purchasing the boxes, all you need to make it, you've probably

It is just good, this type need to be done at night and not so bright lighting. So many preparation

My female assistant did this as a "I can do magic too" bit. It brought the house down. It was going
to be our second to last trick but the reaction was so great that we ended with it. Lots of "oohs,
ahhs and laughs".
As for the expense of making it, how does FREE sound. I went on the internet
(Craigslist) and found people in area who had just moved and wanted to get rid of their moving
boxes. In my opinion, used beat up boxes add to the effect.Thanks, Andrew. Great original trick.

I think this is one of the best stage tricks out there and not only that this trick has a great
Does it serve the purpose of what it is supposed to do? Yes it does, which is why it earned 2 stars
because that in my mind...is all that it does. I think that Andrew Mayne is a great guy and I enjoy
some of his things but this one was just a flat out cheap way out. I can't say that I would
recommend it, because I don't think that you will ever end up using it. But that's just my opinion
on it, so do as you please.
If you can't find a Public Storage near you by using the 800 number seen in the video I think I may
know another source. 24"X24" is a very common size for kitchen cabinets. Look for a contractor
remodeling kitchens or building houses and they may be able to get you boxes for free.
Mayne came up with a very impressive and inexpensive full sized stage illusion and I like how he did
it. My only disappointment was when I found out that he wasn't really cutting himself in half.
Good work, Andrew.
The perfect stage illusion for us common folk.
an easy, inexpensive
vanish of half your body.
