This is my version of the classic Cube A Libre made in an old-time style.
Built in Walnut and accented with brass, it gives this effect the look of a magic prop from long ago. The tube is hand-rubbed and meticulously polished to give it that old time look and feel.
There is no hole in the tube as the gimmick is self-contained. The cubes are durable, yet light weight--only 4 ounces each. The entire set with tube, blocks, special gimmicks and custom cardboard carrying case weigh only 7 1/2 pounds.
I also make a nice wood custom carrying case--available on this website.
Two stacks of blocks, fully inspectable, each stack of blocks is numbered one through six. Rearrange the blocks from one stack, place the column over the second stack for a split second and when the column is removed the number order of the second stack matches the first exactly.
The performer puts it through its paces by turning the blocks sideways, backwards, upside down--but the second stack of blocks always matches the first. For a finale, the spectator chooses whichever way they would like the blocks to be stacked.
I've been wanting a set of these for a long time. This Christmas, my wife gave me a set of your Old Time Cube-A-Libre, and I must say that it is delightful. It is very well made...Thanks very much for putting out this wonderful prop!
"Simply Amazing!" The Cube a Libre absolutely blew me away..."
"All I can say is WOW! Either I'm a total blockhead or this is one of the most devious methods I've ever seen. I couldn't figure it out."
