To construct B W Table

Figure 61 shows a rough sketch of this table. It may be lacquered in black and decorated with Mandarin red and gold. It is necessary to build a changing trap for the top. You will have no difficulty if you will study the illustrations and explanation carefully.

Figure 62 shows a cross section of top of table when flap is raised.

Figure 63 is a diagram of top, showing arrangement of frame with flap in the middle.

After you have made box for table top, place open frame over top edges of box, and attach a flap across middle of frame by hinges—flap should be half the size of the opening in frame. Tack a piece of cloth to one end of frame at inner edge of opening. Turn flap down toward opposite end, stretch cloth tight across opening in frame and tack it to top of flap. With flap in this position, cloth forms table top. Now turn flap over to opposite end of frame, letting cloth go inside box of table top and stretch cloth over other side of flap to end of opening in frame and tack.

You now have this arrangement: Flap in middle of open frame on top of box which forms table top. On each side of flap cloth extends to each edge of opening in frame, making sides A and B, Figure 64.

When flap is closed down to side A, cloth A goes down into box of table top and is concealed, and cloth B is stretched tight over top of table. When flap is closed down to side B, cloth B goes down and cloth A forms the table top.

Figures 65 and 66 are cross section views showing construction.

Decorate sides A and B alike with just a border around the edges and a line across each way as shown in Figure 61.

On solid part of table top at both ends place a small catch which can be turned over flap to hold it when you place rabbit under it, Figure 67.

Figures 68 and 69 show diagrams of operation of Changing Table in this effect. If a box of candy is placed in compartment A and flap closed down on it, and a rabbit is placed on top of side B, the weight of rabbit will cause B to go down, raising flap up. Performer brings flap down over side B, concealing rabbit and the box of candy is brought up to top of table.

Make table legs to screw on to top.

After table is built, prepare for experiment by placing box of candy in compartment A with flap down over it. Fold piece of paper and have it lying on table.
