Step 3. Shape the copper coil so that its width is a little smaller than the width/length of the sheet of wood. Larger bins, make the coil
so that it's about the width of the outer edge of the wood lengths. Then shape the copper coil into a perfect coil shape with about 1 to 1.5
inch spacing between each turn of the tube. Leave enough length on the bottom end of the coil to reach 2 inches past one side of the plastic
bin and enough length on the top end to reach about 5-6 inches past the other side of the bin. IMPORTANT: If there's excess tubing, have it so
that the excess is on the top part of the coil so that after you cut it, nobody can cut their lip on the sawed edge being that poeple will drink it from the bottom part. Make the coil tall enough to
go near the top of the plastic bin
Step 6. Next you'll be cutting 2 holes in the plastic bin. First on one side near the bottom, slightly lower than the thickness of the wood
sheet. The second hole will be on the opposite side a little higher up than the height of the coil. Try to make the width of the holes as
close to the width of the pipes as you can, preferable so that its a snug fit.
Step 7. Cover the bottom of the wood sheet with silicone sealant and then position it centered on the inside of the plastic bin so the ends
of the tube line up with the holes. Then push the ends of the tube through the holes so that the bottom one comes out 2 inches and the top
one comes out about 5-6 inches. Use more silicone to thoroughly seal the area around the holes. You may now attach the last pipe straps.
Step 8. Carefully bend the upper extruding tube so that it faces upward. This is where the funnel will go. Be sure to allow ample time for
the silicone to dry before putting the Coil Luge into service.
You can also make it so that the block of ice can be removed from the plastic bin if you want the novelty of having an open ice
block in the center of a party. To do this, don't make the holes in the plastic bin or route the tubes through them,
cover the lower end of the tube with a cork or something similar during the freezing process. Don't apply the silicone to the bottom of the wood sheet.
You'll then need to weight down the wood sheet with something small but heavy. Once you remove the frozen ice block assembly you'll have to chip away the
ice at the bottom end of the tube.
