thanks, i think so too!....made completely with 3/4" square strips of cherry, oak, red oak, walnut, maple and hickory...
I do not worry about splitting as all edges will be glued/individually screwed to each long run.
This trick should prove to be pretty cool...here's the scenario....

I show a box, inside and out as solid.
I place an ordinary quarter, nickle, etc. into the box and close the lid, I shake it so you hear the coin.
I can hold it in my hand, or set it on the table, platform, or stack of cinder blocks...whatever, tap 3 times with my wand and the coin passes through the box and into my hand or onto the table, platform, blocks, etc.
I open the box to show it empty once more, and shake it to show no coin remains inside.
The locked box and coin may be handed around to be inspected as solid. (yes, there will be a hidden lock as well)

Think it'll fly in the big city?

When the coin passes through to the table, does the audience see it come out?

update.....
I tried a coffin shape, but that was a no-go, so I believe I'll do it sweet and simple.
This will make it even MORE baffling! The shape and look of the wood lends itself nicely to another Castle type box, yes?

Why wasn't the dog assisting?

I wish the video was a bit clearer, but cool nonetheless.

I know the quality of a few of my videos is bad, but I does what I cans with what I gots. The wife is still after me to redo the Greedy King Pete video so I don't 'wash out' during the performance. But that crap all over me is uncomfortable as all get out, and it's hard to do everything I have to do.
