Hey guys,
Just got my new acquisition: Sean Young’s 3-way mirror. So this is how I set up for my (First) morning coffee now. Haven't had a chance to travel with it yet, but when the borders open again, I know what else I’ll be packing now.
PS.. Don’t know why I cant get photo to show right side up. Even my wife can’t fix it. Must be a southern hemisphere thing🤨.

Nice! I'm an early morning practice-person myself. Enjoy!

John, just make sure you don't allow the set-up to inhibit your style.  What I mean is if you constantly practice on a mat, surrounded by a cage, then you tend to get used to it.  I am by no means saying not to use the mirror, just be aware that when you actually perform, you probably will not be in the same position or limited by space.

Nice mirror! I have one too. I also like to use the back of it as a surface.

No problem John.[smile]

Unfortunately my best trick.

Great advice. I like using a mat to practice, but I try not to because I rarely get to perform with one

Thanks for the advice, Ray. That sounds very wise. I’ll make sure I stagger the way I practice. I think so far the mirror has helped me become aware of some bad angles that I hope lets me start to undo some unhelpful habits.

Hey DJ, yes, the fabric is nice for scooping cards and coins, although somewhat small for a lot of effects. And of course, I live in fear of a spilled coffee😏.

Very nice set-up, John!  Mine is similar but my "equipment" is much less professional.

What a great way to start the morning !!  Doesn't get much better....a deck of cards....a cup of coffee in a favorite cup.....and a little one on one practice time.

Thanks for sharing your morning ritual John.  I would have started out this way also but THE WIFE handed me the "honey do list " for today already. LOL
