This is a fooler that would puzzle most magicians familiar with the working of similar block penetrations … as there’s no black art used. A yellow block decorated with Oriental characters is displayed cleanly, all sides shown. It’s banged on the table and even tossed in the air! It’s completely solid except for a hole running through it from one side to the other. A thin walled cabinet consisting of only two sides and base, no front back or top, is also freely shown together with a small magic wand. There are holes in the walls of the cabinet similar to the ones through the block. The wand is inserted through the holes so it now runs across the cabinet.

The block is placed (or dropped!) into the cabinet where it’s seen resting on the wand. A spectator is asked to push on the block, but it doesn’t move as the solid wand is blocking it’s path. The block is once again shown all around and then placed back on the wand. This time the performer uses a single finger and slowly pushes the block through the wand to the bottom of the cabinet….visibly penetrating the wand! For the killer ending, the entire cabinet is turned upside down. The block hanging at the top still locked in place by the wand which runs through both the block and cabinet. The performer now takes the block and pulls it down….through the wand and free of the cabinet! The block is immediately shown all around once again with nothing to find.

The craftsmanship is outstanding. The work is completely invisible. The method is unique and a fooler.
