Art Table Top
Big Red Box of Magic
by Jim Gerrish
Busker: a person who performs
entertainments in public places for donations.
When a busker needs a table, it needs to
be light and transportable, easily set up and sturdy
enough to stand up against wind and weather as well as
bustling crowds of curious on-lookers. As shown in the
photo, you can carry the basic stand over your shoulder,
and the tabletop and tote bag filled with props in one
hand. Open the table stand, arrange the tote bag beneath
it, set the top on the stand, and you are ready to
perform. The height of the tabletop should be just above
your waist while standing behind the table.
Most buskers aren't the wealthiest
magicians, yet professional busking tables cost several
hundred dollars. This is one you can buy for under $75
ready made (needing just a little work on your part), or
make from scratch for under $25 if you have some basic
woodworking skills and tools.
The e-Book gives you sources for buying
parts, instructions for assembling parts, and plans and
instructions for building a complete table from scratch
(the beginning). Ideas are also given for inserting
various secret compartments, wells, and servantes that
aren't usually found in busker's tables, although buskers
certainly know what to do with them when they are
present. You can also add some secrets that your busking
father never had because they hadn't been invented back
