This is a great drawer box from Alan Warner. One of his earliest works, so it lacks some of the ornateness of his more recent creations. However, as a wonderful and functional drawer box it is superb.
Unlike many drawer boxes there are no outward signs of holes or levers or pins and you don’t need to tilt the box one way or another – it is much cleaner than those methods. Whenever Alan applies his talents to even the simplest of devices he always comes up with something a little better. This drawer box is no exception. In fact, it is so well built that you could have a member of the audience open it up to show the load appear!
If there is a downside with this box, its the size of the load it can hold. It only fits bridge size cards, since in the UK that is the standard size for cards – not those huge Poker sized cards that American’s are so fond of.
Its always bigger in America, especially Texas! But as Alan Warner has repeatedly shown, mini is better and more beautiful!
This clever piece of Mini-Magic represents the completion of my Alan Warner Mini-Magic collection that can be viewed in all its glory $link(http://warner.qualitymagic.com target=_blank,here). It is a old chestnut, and one of Alan’s earliest Teak pieces, but very well made by the master craftsman himself.
In this version there are no funny moves or sleights. The block is loaded, the bar locks the block in place, and then on the command of the magician the block falls!
Its nice to complete the collection Alan, thanks for making it all possible!
So after a long time Alan Warner is back making one of his favorite effects: the Mummy!
The new version is even better than the original, if that is possible, with more teak work, and some enhancements to the smoothness of the opertation and performance.
So, if you have been trying to track one of these down, now maybe is the time you can get one. It is sure to be a hit and is most highly recommended. $link(http://warner.qualitymagic.com/?html=full&key=1698 target=warner,Click here) for the effect.
Well I waited over 8 months for this, but the wait was well worth it. This is one of the final pieces in the Alan Warner teak collection, at least for now. To see and touch Alan’s magic is really the only way to appreciate the time and effort he spends in every intricate detail of design and construction.
This is certainly one of his finer pieces of craftmanship and the effect is also very clean and surprising. It blends in very nicely with his other Egyptian effects.
I will miss receiving my monthly packages from you Alan, so please start thinking up some more of your wonderful magic!
Ah my good Friend Alan Warner always shows me the money!
Finally, more quality from the marvellous Alan Warner! There have been many versions of the money maker, I have been parital to the $link(http://www.martinsmagic.com/?key=827&html=full,Delben Blotter) and of course $link(http://www.martinsmagic.com/?key=1493&html=full,Owen’s Denver Mint). However, Alan Warner in his usual imagintive style has taken a fairly simple effect made it look beautiful and added the double whammy of the note changing not once but twice. It works cleanly, of course, and is actually quite amazing how he gets the change to work twice without removing or stealing anything away. Very simple to do and a sheer delight to behold.
The Money Maker follows along the same lines of Alan’s recent works – more intricate detail to the boxes, bigger and more impressive teak work. Another winner from Mr. Warner.
I have spent two years trying to track this down and finally I got a lead from a fellow ebayer. Alan Warner sadly no longer makes this effect, but this set I picked up was in mint condition and they are beautiful.
The effect is similar to the $link(http://www.martinsmagic.com/?html=full&key=1337, Voit Mummies) with an extra piece of magic where the mummy is seen to actually float in the coffin. Then the transposition of the mummy going from one coffin to the other occurs.
Its a shame that Alan stopped making these, but I am more than a little pleased that I managed to track one down.
Well I am very, very lucky to have this beautiful piece. Alan Warner himself gave me this from his own personal collection as a thank-you for this new website. This was a most wonderful surprise, since this is one of his very early teak pieces, that he discontinued years ago.
The effect is simple but beautiful of course.
This really is a very beautiful piece – did I say I was very, very pleased to receive this today? Thank-you Alan very much!
The latest creation from master craftsman Alan Warner certainly delivers! The detail on the boxes is incredible – it really is magical just to look at them. I know why there are so few inventors out there making this sort of magic: because Craftsmanship like Alan’s is in very, very short supply.
The effect and patter line are entertaining and the basic effect is a simple transportation from one box to the other. Not a new method or theme, but with these props and the patter line its still a beauty.
I know Alan really puts his heart and soul into his work, and for this effect it is very obvious he does so. If you have not seen any of Alan’s work up close, its about time you did. You will not be dissappointed.
Keep any eye open for a new site dedicated 100% to this wonderful creator: $link(http://warner.qualitymagic.com,warner.qualitymagic.com) – it will be live soon!
