Thanks to both of you. I think for now I will buy what I need, and maybe in a month or so buy some parts and see if I can make something I like a little better.

 

This is the epitome of all DIY, in my opinion.  Make what you like, and part of the fun (as well as part of the real or perceived improvements too, probably) is getting just what you want and just the way you want it to look.

Is 550 paracord big enough for a 4-cable braid of 24 AWG?

Not in my experience.

Nylon multifilament is available in many different sizes (but rarely in any color other than black).  I think 3/16" fits most 24awg wires (definitely fine for Doublehelixcables Nucleotide), but I think wire stripped out of Canare and Mogami cables are a little thicker.  I haven't worked with them in a while so others will have to chime in.  You can get nylon multifilament from a lot of places, but I get mine from the seller furryletters on ebay.

Thank you! Would it hurt terribly to have it a bit thicker, maybe 1/4"?

It will be a bit loose, but probably won't be too big a deal.  I think 3/16" will work fine, I just haven't tested it myself.

Why don't you try getting micro paracord, sleeve each nucleotide wire and then braid sleeved? (this will be more tedious work though). Look at Fraggler's pictures in this thread, those are some pretty gorgeous cables! :)

I still can't fathom trying to sleeve 6 feet of cable. Especially 4 times. Guess I just don't know the trick yet.

Two good movies does the trick.
