Jim Gerrish has a rectangular version you can make from hardboard and duct tape (or wood and brass fittings if you want elegance more than utility) in his "Hardboard and Duct Tape Magic Book 1" under the name "Production Tubes."

You start by finding a globular fish bowl or vase and then work out the sizes of the tubes needed from there.

The trick was not invented by Kuma--it goes way back hundreds of years earlier in China.

dear Mr. Kaufman
I found infos about "Okito Siamese cylinders" aka "Kuma tubes" on "Okito quality magic book " and on " Okito on Magic" ,

but on those books it's explained the no table version ,

where I can get that version ?

Dear Mr. Kaufman
