On the performer’s table is seen a platform base and a set of two square tubes. One tube is solid. The other has two solid sides with two square windows, allowing a clear view right through. The tubes are assembled on the platform and the inner tube is lifted and shown unmistakably empty. It is then placed back onto a platform. The performer now reaches into the inner tube and produces a solid object like a cell phone, etc. seemingly from nowhere!
The performer now picks up the outer tube and shows all around, followed by the inner tube again being removed and shown empty from both ends (The spectator is allowed to even stick their hands inside to assure that it is, in fact, empty) and then placed back onto the platform. Immediately, another production of silks begins!
This really creates a very convincing illusion as the tubes both do seem to be truly empty up to the last second and it uses NO body loads or table loads of any kind.
The outer tube is adorned with Dark Mahogany while the inner tube and base of the unit are finished in African Zebra Wood. The photos really don’t do justice to this gorgeous prop. It is absolutely striking in appearance and utterly practical in use.
Square Tube of Pekka is approximately 6.5” high when standing on the 4-leg base and the actual base of the unit is 5 3/4” square. The outer tube is 3.5” square and the inner tube is approximately 3” square and about 5.5” high.
Finished in the finest possible coating with hand polishing and sanding in between.
