I saw that one.
No reason it wouldn't work, but this guy made a jig with 8 vertical tubes to get that pattern. Seems like a lot of work.
About 30 seconds after seeing it i started considering wrapping 50 feet 5/16 copper over a 4" plastic pipe, and then partially unwinding individual loops and lacing things up with copper wire for sort of a helically wound flower sort of arrangement. Like a flame arrestor in the crankcase breather of an old engine.
