Illusionist’s heart pendant from that one movie. Mahogany. The halves aren’t symmetrical and there’s a noticeable filler hole on the side.Oh well, trial and error. The pen is Padauk.

Cool! I JUST saw The Illusionist last night! I was wondering if anyone had tried making one of these. Does it open up? What did you use for the pivoting hinge?

It doesn’t open up, just twists into shape. It’s held together by a thin bolt. I first saw it here. http://www.instructables.com/id/Customized-wooden-heart/

Very nice work on this project. Keep up the good work. On a side note I must not be the only one that would like to see Steve ( from WWMM ) produce a video on how to make one of these. What do you say Steve?

I’d love to figure out how to make the pivoting lid in the movie. I think I’ll play around with this today on a larger scale.

If I remember right, someone made one that functioned similar to the movie (I think there’s still a video on Youtube) but it was considerably bigger than the one in the movie. I’ve tried and tried to come up with something that works like the movie, (Which was done, of course, with 2 separate pendants), however I seem to get stuck with having to rely on magnets or something similar. I wanted a good, positive hold on the parts, and a mechanical one at that.
