Product: 6 Piece Segmented Chop Cup
Price: Custom (Enquire)
Eric's pieces are all "one off's" and t his was a special order so it's wise to
enquire (do it soon though, Eric gets busy.)
This was a custom ordered piece so just the cup was
included. When Eric makes pieces for sale you will usually get a bag, balls etc and miniature baseball
bats etc depending on the cup type offered.

2 weeks! That was amazing, I have ordered things from
other local towns that have taken longer! It was packed perfectly in many layers of tissue and bubble
wrap, all packed in a cardboard box.
This is the most beautifully constructed chop cup I have seen.
Period. This may sound gushing but I mean it. It's solid and has a wonderfully warm feel to
The woods it is made from are: Wenge for the base, rim, and lip,
the bottom layer is Paduk (redish), mid layer is Zebra Wood, and the top layer is
It is perfectly aligned and smooth inside and has a wonderful weight to it too. This is
not a delicate cup, it is solid and begs to be used.
It's perfect for my needs, holds a tennis ball (my favourite size
final load) and matches the wand I had custom
made (also by Eric.) It works just as a chop cup should.
You have total control of the ball and you don't have to bang hard
to dislodge it.
I have tried it with both The Ambitious Card Monkey Fist Balls and regular crochet ones and
both work perfectly.
Eric has a wonderful eye for detail and it is clear he is an
absolute perfectionist, it shows in his work.
The woods are carefully chosen (and I mean carefully chosen... searching
for the perfect wood by boat, snow mobile and on foot in snow shoes... you really have no idea!) and work
together so well and it's not just a pretty piece, it works and functions
So, overall a well deserved 5 out of 5. I think I
am going to have to change my rating system to points out of 10, 5 isn't
