Find a regular cable that you want to coil.
Put the cable on the pencil and clip it with paper clip on one side.
Start rolling cable around the pencil, when you get to the end use paper clip to keep it in place.
Use a Hair Dryer to heat up the cable from front and back (approximately 90 seconds from each side).
After you heat it up leave it for 15 min to cool off.
Take the paper clips off and pull the pencil out.
And you are done.
