Items for Sale by Fred's Creative Woodworking

A Mirascope is an optical illusion box that projects an image in space above the box. It is like a hologram but is not a hologram. The image is created completely with mirrors. The image is 3-D and extremely realistic, so much so that when someone looks at it they are certain that it is there, that is, until they try to touch it!

I make a beautiful turned wooden box that holds the Mirascope. Included is a wood lid that fits the opening of the box. If the lid is on the box and someone lifts it, the image will pop out. You can put almost any small object in the box and it will project up into the air above the box (see photo). The one I sell includes a small frog that projects above the box. One of my customers put a diamond in the bottom. Others find buttons, gems, etc. work well. I’m looking for an eyeball (glass one, of course) to put in one of my display models.

Little people (AKA, kids and grandkids!) love them for "Show 'N Tel". Also, big kids (AKA, executives) love them on their desk as a conversation piece. They also work well in almost any area of the house where you need that "little extra" to spice things up! I include an instruction/care sheet with each box.

I make these from Pennsylvania Black Cherry from my property. They are truly a handsome piece of art and a very unique gift!
