Make your own Portal Sentry Turret Egg Cup

1 posts


I made this Portal Turret egg cup using materials I had at home. These materials are also widely available at hobby shops. It may be easier to create the egg cup with other methods, such as welding, machine working, 3D printing, etc., but I used what I had at hand. Makes breakfast a little more science-y.


Here is the materials and tools list. The image doesn't show everything and a few items I didn't use in the end.

Floral or Garden wire, 1.5mm diameter (in black if possible)
