False Backed Chair HELP NEEDED

1184 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  TheDarkRideBoy
Does anyone have any ideas on how to make a false backed chair? I'd really like to have it for the vanishing of Houdini. Any recommendations? I'm not a skilled builder, so, something simple, yet effective would be awesome! If anyone has seen the final lair scene in Phantom of the Opera, you'll know what I'm talking about.

Gym... It's like this:
How does the throne work?

[O.P & L.V]

It has a false back. When the Phantom throws his cloak over himself, he attaches the top to wire which pulls out, keeping the shape of a head. The back is released and he can move into the false back of the chair. If Meg sat on the chair at the end, she would be almost sitting on the Phantom's lap.
JCO, as an illusionist myself, I can't believe I didn't I didn't think of that! Golly! I feel like such a fool!
