I do fairly often. Usually for 8 braid. Occasionally others from 4-12. Never had a reason to try 16. Even 12 was a "just to see if I can" experiment.
Seems like a waste of cable - No sonic benefits and big increase in weight. Using boutique cable would as up fast.
Most of the YouTube video tutorials translate over to cable pretty well. One exception is that cable is stiffer so the same smooth patterns won't necessarily happen. There are ways around that if you get creative.
Edit: we're in the wrong thread for this discussion. Let's take it to the DIY Cable questions & comments thread.
