Resources for the magic trick inventor/builder?

Number Two Son is very interested in magic and also crafts/inventions. He often recreates or alters little magical devices he sees or buys at the store.
We also read a book recently that had a character whose profession was builder-of-magical-props.
Googling around for phrases like this finds a lot of spurious hits. Is there a professional term for it? And whether or not there is, what resources exist for learning more? (If these are hard to find on purpose, you can memail instead of posting it here.)
