Workshop Plans: Portable Trunk to Magic Table Stand

User Rating: / 10

It was with some trepidation that I embarked on this project. Having examined the inadequacies of my former equipment, and failing to find a reasonable solution available on the market, I had little recourse but to forge ahead and design my own equipment. I wanted to build something that would:

  • Double as a carry-all for all my magic equipment and still retain its portability
  • Be sturdy and road-worthy
  • Wear well and be attractive
  • Not look like a collapsible suitcase when set-up
  • Have a behind-the-stand servante that is "invisible" from side angles
  • Close quickly after the show, completely protecting props from curious children and adults
  • Be easy to build using just a few tools and a limited knowledge of woodworking
This 20 page booklet will show you step-by-step how to build my original design for a trunk-to-magic-stand. Don’t let the name Preston Grey confuse you – that was my stage moniker 25 years ago. This booklet originally sold for $10 back in the mid 80s but you can download it now for FREE right here.
