In this magic illusion, the magician holds two square columns up so the audience can see through one end and out the other. A wand, or a hand wave, can be shown to go through the columns to further prove that each is empty. He then holds a solid piece of plastic up for the audience to see. He taps a wood cube against the plastic to show both are solid. He places the plastic between the columns and explains to the audience that he will drop a solid cube down the top column and it will go right through the solid plastic plate and out the bottom of the lower column. He then drops the solid cube and it indeed falls through and out the bottom - seeming to penetrate the solid plastic plate.
