2014 model

In 1938 Al Baker's Cherchez La Femme magic effect appeared in Greater Magic.  While in high school I built a version from found grape crate (lug) wood.  The 2014 photo shows a new version I've just finished.  I had planned to make a more graceful base but the dense reddish wood I chose was extremely difficult to turn.  Both models work just fine. The earlier model used standard poker sized cards; the current version uses jumbo cards.
