I’ve seen many types of nest of boxes over the years but this design by Tommy Wonder expertly reproduced by JM Craft is certainly one of the cleverest. It is surprisingly easy to perform with Tommy’s routine taking care of all of the tricky parts and it works perfectly and looks amazing.
In Tommy’s book and also when Tommy discusses the method in Visions of Wonder with Max Maven, Tommy refers to a special table that he uses for this effect. There seems to be some confusion if the table is needed to perform this and I can confirm it is not. It is best if the box cannot be seen at first and is lifted from behind another prop on a standard table, from a shelf in the table, or from behind the bar, etc. but apart from that any table works.

- Small black velvet bag to protect the watch (bonus).
- Printed instructions from Books of Wonder Volume 2 (bonus).
- Use a borrowed watch.
