I built myself a table top and legs for street performing. I guess I'm rather obsessed with Gazzo's set up and whatnot, so I figure I'd make one myself. I don't have the large Gazzo cups, so I'm using my juggling balls as final loads with a big softball as the melon replacement. Kinda ghetto, I know, but it's still a colorful ending.

It's just at waist height for me, can't wait to get out there and make good use of it. Luckily for me, my girlfriend is an artist, she's going to deck out my table top in my stage name/color set. It's gonna be sweet. I will post the painted set later. :D

Ahh, bumping my own thread. Well, I have made some modifications to my table. Sanded and smoothed everything down, then added some awesome mali-cloth on the surface with a thin under padding of poker table foam. Feels and works cards/coins just perfectly.

Here are the updated photos, new gear too!

Leather pouch, big show cups, my original copper cups, tennis ball loads, street wand.

All set to go come this spring.

Aluminum Boscos?

A fine set and what may I ask are the copper ones?

If you are looking to get a Gazzo set you should try Magicpitch.co.uk
Gary has some sweet deals right now.


As always,
Dylan

Really nice looking table, I'd love to see a video of it in action!

I hope to be out on the street this week some time. Awesome weather here in Boston, can't wait to get to Fanny Hall. I might get a camcorder out there and see how it goes.

Wish me luck. :D

You know I have been in magic now for around 25 years and never got into the cup and ball. ( Funny ) Everybody should own a set. Anyways I just bought my first set of cups and balls. After my kids show this weekend I will start to play around with them.

Cups and Balls may seem a little overdone on the street perhaps, but it's SO fun... And if you want one for yourself, PM me and I can commission one for you should you want one. :)
