The difference between the Take-Apart Vanishes
and Tear-Apart Vanishes is that the Tear Apart box is
made up of frames which are filled with newspaper, comic book
paper, cheap gift wrap, colored tissue, and the like. In showing
the pieces bird-free at the end, you tear out the
paper centers of the frames, apparently leaving nowhere for the
birds to be except vanished. Take-Apart Vanish boxes
are made of solid pieces and can be smaller because of that.
We begin with two different versions of the Tear-Apart Dove
Vanish, one of which can be handed to a spectator at the end.
Then we will build two different versions of the Take-Apart
Dove Vanish, but unlike most of the versions being marketed, when
you take the pieces apart, you can hand them to a spectator to
hold... they are BOTH that clean!
Each of the boxes has its place in a show. Each costs about
$10 to build and can be made in a week-end with simple tools: a
power circular saw, power sabre saw (or hand saws) and a power
drill, hammer, nails, duct tape and paint. All four boxes are
animal friendly and can be built in larger sizes to accomodate
rabbits, and tinier sizes for canaries and parakeets.
