I posted earlier with this topic with no response. Now I've found the proper name and hope that someone has an answer. I'm wondering if the blueprint/plans are available for Deceptive Stairs and if so, where I can get them.
Take a serious look at Rand Woodbury's Illusionworks video Vol. 1 "Steps and Bases". Step by step instruction for a great set of steps (and a nice base). Be sure to pick up Vol. 3 "Tricks of the Trade", as an important informational compliment.
Yup. . .I've ordered a copy of the video along with a set of DECEPTIVE STAIRS plans from Osbourne. I hope the carpenter will have enough information between the two. There aren't really any illusion builders in Finland, so I need to get this guy as much material as I can to be sure that I get what I want.
Okay. . . I have the blueprints and the video tape. But there seems to bit of information missing from both. What is the best way to do the trap at the bottom of the table to stairs? Should this also be spandex? Any tips would be appreciated. I'm talking to a rather good carpenter, but he has no experience with building illusions.
