||The demand for custom coin work is increasing, but finding a reliable specialist in this area of expertise is difficult. It's often hard to convey your specific desires to machinists who are not magicians. As a Magician and Machinist, I can relate to your needs and desires, and I have the experience of working with machined coins & props using metal, wood and plastic.
I can make just about any kind of metal prop that can be machined. I can make it from just about any metal; attention-grabbing aluminum, traditional brass and even from steel.
Wood is also a specialty. I focus on items that can be turned on a lathe such as Cups, Coin Boxes, Rings, Wands....you name it! I also work with exotic woods such as Chechen, Goncalo Aives, Paduak, Honduras Rosewood, Yellowheart, Purpleheart, Canary Wood and Mahogany.
Most of my plastic work specializes in the using plastic as a colorful inlay to a wood or metal prop. I also can machine just about anything from plastic.

Commercial Prototyping and Production
Having a idea for a magic product and getting it from idea to a working, sellable product can be frustrating. If you have an idea and want to get it from a mere idea to production, perhaps I can help. I can help translate your idea into a workable, sellable product. I can make prototypes and even manufacture the end product. I specialize in close-up products, but can also design and manufacture mechanisms for larger products.
If you have an idea, give me a call and we can discuss the possibilities. Rest assured that your idea will be held in the strictest confidentiality.
Some of my past work includes producing prototypes and commercial products for Jay Sankey, Bob Farmer, David Ben, Danny Orleans, and Morrisey Magic.
