Thanks to Dave V, Pete Biro, Eric Evans, and Mad Jake for their advice, and thanks to Tommy Wonder for gifting the magic community with such a gem. RIP Mr. Wonder.

That looks very nice. When Tommy sold "official Tommy Wonder cups," he sold cups that were made by Morrissey. I asked him why, and he said that they were inexpensive and they were the right dimensions.

Thanks. I think the cups in the picture may be from a Morrissey set. Unfortunately, my dad bought them 40 years ago, and doesn't remember what brand they were. They work great though. They look like the the cups shown in the Wonder books, and they fit my hands perfectly.

Just in case you wondered what wisdom looks like in distilled form, here it is.

A small price to pay. Mastering the routine will take longer. Congrats on your dedication!

Absolutely right. Practicing the routine many time a day! Performing for the first time will definitely be scary though.

You can't put a price on things that you make that work well. Sometimes the things that take weeks and even months of your life are things that nobody should ever see at all. Think about this the next time you perform something that uses a perfectly executed sleight.

Totally right. Another great example is Tommy Wonder's Watch to Nest of Boxes(method 3 of course). A mammoth project that nobody will ever see.
