At the Maker Space in the local public library where I was 3D printing another project, I saw a cute rabbit holding a foil wrapped egg. My immediate thought was to have the little bunny hold a wooden egg that I have turned.

I managed to obtain one from the library then went home to turn the egg. The wood is a left over lamination. In a video a couple years ago, I presented what someone termed the perfect egg. (Woodturn My Eggs Easy Over Please).

The bunny rabbit is 3D printed using a pattern from Thingiverse. Many public libraries have Maker Spaces or equivalents with a 3D printer for public use.

In summary, a perfect egg has a bottom that is a perfect hemisphere. Therefore, the distance from the big end to the widest part of the egg is 1/2 the diameter. The overall length of the egg, as specified in that article is 1.29 times the diameter. Blend the two together for a perfect egg.

However, I don’t believe I’ve ever noted a “perfect” chicken egg. Further, I have noticed that other species’ eggs vary even more. But at least, this measure gets me close.

After finishing the egg, set it on the bunny rabbit holder.
