Bow Sawing by Paul Osborne - Book
Easily the most practical and effective sawing ever created!
Imagine selecting any audience member and having them lay on a thin table. Two small panels held together with strips of wood are placed around their mid-section. An impressive bow saw is introduced and slipped into the top of the panels directly above the spectator. As the saw is moved back and forth through the panels, it saws through the wood strips and apparently the spectator. Once the saw has reached the table, the panels are removed and the spectator must sit up to demonstrate that it has passed completely through the spectator, without harming them.
This is a dream illusion to present because it packs small, plays big and can be done surrounded with any audience member. We give you the complete workshop plans, including plans for the table that can be folded up and carried under one arm. The illusion can be carried under the other arm and the entire outfit will fit in your Volkswagon Bug. This is the only known detailed and updated plan of this prop and it is available.
Paul Osborne illusion plans are conceived with the builder,collector and performer in mind. We outline the working, construction and performing of each illusion. All plans are drawn on 15" x 20" paper using US Standard measurements, easily converted to metric measurements using a metric conversion chart. These are real prints and, because they are drawn to scale, any measurement can be verified with an architect's scale.
We feel that our plans look equally at home on your workshop bench or your magic library.
