Based on Robert Harbin's original routine and prop, the Antique Haunted Timber is a block of fine oak hardwood, 9 x 1.5 x 1.5 inches. The block is hand-distressed, aged through a series of seven re-working procedures for an authentic-looking "cursed block."
The magician displays a beautiful old block of wood. He tells a story about how years ago, a wealthy developer cut down the world's oldest oak tree. But first, a witch cursed the ground where the tree grew and all of the wood taken from the forest.
The townspeople claimed spirits inhabited the wood, causing it to shake, rattle, and move on its own. It was impossible to build anything out of the timber, as it would just crumble to the ground. They were eager to destroy the cursed wood, yet by an incredible twist of fate, this block survived.
The story sounds unbelievable, but some legends are easy to prove. The magician balances the block on top of a bottle and calls to the witch. Bam! The block leaps off the bottle and falls loudly onto the table. The magician leans the block against the bottle at a steep angle. Suddenly, the block stands up on its own! Then SLAMS against the table with a loud bang! The spirits have arrived... or perhaps they never left. p>Recommended For:
