Wow! Beautiful, Magical, and Entertaining!

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(https://warner.qualitymagic.com,warner.qualitymagic.com) – it will be live soon!

Beautiful and very Clean Prediction Effect

So its easy to get bored with my reviews of Alan Warner magic. I know I have trouble coming up with words that are different each time. The simple fact is that bar none Alan Warner is the number 1 micro magic inventor and manufacturer in the world today. I defy anyone to show me anyone else who is as prolific or as much of a craftsman as Alan Warner.

This effect is clean, beautiful, and very convincing. Any one of the teak plaques can be chosen, and the prediction is turned over to show it matches. The other plaques are then turned over to show that they are all different. No moves or steals.

Very nice!

Simple plot and clean magic

The hole in the card transforms all over the place! Very nice props as usual and nothing too tricky here!

Another clever idea from Alan Warner

Nice props and a clever idea. The red block keeps jumping from side to side inside the box. We want it in the middle! Of course you do. And bingo, there it is. There is certainly no room for the blocks to turn over in the box.

Nice method and great props!

5 Stars of Quality

The effect may not be Alan’s strongest mind blower, but it is still good. The box however is very beautiful so since I don’t have two ratings it gets a five!

The effect is simple: a brass coin dissappears from a holder in the spectator’s hands and ends up back in the carrying case.

Beautiful woodwork from Mr. Warner!

Sweet Surprise!

This is a clean effect with wonderful props. Five cards are shown four blank and a spot card. Also a piece of wood with 5 tacks embeded in it. You also show a cover with a large piece of wood going through it.

The piece of wood is shown to be clearly empty as is the cover. The wood with the tacks is held by a spectator under a hanky … then it happens. The card dissappears, a tack breaks off from the ones embedded in the wood, only to appear inside the cover.

Great magic.

Simple but a great puzzler

This is based on a similar principle to an old effect of Alan’s Dice-A-Matic. But the adding of the initials is a real stroke of genius! I think it takes it from the trick class to the miracle class.

BTW, the wand was added in for effect, the original comes with just a stick!

Great magic and great props of course!

Nice props, clean effect!

An interesting patter line that can be pulled off with some work. Or choose a different story! The effect is easy enough: you take out the intriciate bar and close the box. Then suddenly they switch places and the plain one is in your pocket with the intricate one back in the box.

Very well made props and workable method.

Simple magic, great props

You show a chinese puzzle then first the spare hole dissappears finally to replaced by a puzzle of a totally different color with one slot for the missing piece!

Great magic, direct and with wonderful props!
