1. David Copperfield’s death saw
David Copperfield is one of the best-known classic magicians ever. One of his favorite tricks was the death saw magic act in where he split himself in half using a giant saw blade.
In order to perform the illusion, Copperfield used an assistant for the latter part of his body. Together they seemed to be just a single person. The secret of this trick is in the table beneath and the tiny gap between the tables that the saw blade can easily pass through. Copperfield’s legs were bent into the table, and the assistant’s upper body was hidden in the table below.
As you see, magic is much easier than it seems to be. With good preparation, you could do it yourself. Which of the tricks out of our list would you try to perform? Tell us in the comments below!
