Sorry for the late response. If you want to see someone do it, look for "diy cable coiling" by a guy named "CruzCtrl" But this is how I did it :) I looped it around a steel bar as tight as I could, securing the ends of the cable with tape so they don't come loose, then heat it with a heat gun at 150 °C and about 10cm apart from it, constantly moving the heat gun so the cable doesn't get burn, do that for about 2 minutes and leave it cool down. Repeat the process of heating and letting it cool 3 to 5 times, the final step is to just leave it for 12 to 24 hours, take the tape off and enjoy your new coil :D
