    Honeycomb egg cage made from 68 mm PVC down pipe. "Legs" made from longer sections split lengthwise. Microwave plate covered in anti-slip mat.



    Parts list:

    Anti-slip mat


    I also needed:

    Hacksaw
    Cyanoacrylate glue or PVC cement
    Scissors to cut mat
    Double-sided stick tape to hold it on plate
