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.

Simple braids can be done without jigs. Most round or half-round braids will even do you the favour of holding the wires nicely in place and you can just leave it and not lose your place. Certain braids are complex though, and require fixtures and helping hands.

 

Most braids that people are familiar with are two step patterns that repeat (and sometimes the second step is just the first step but mirrored). The one I was doing in the pic is 8 steps (or 4 then mirrored, sorta).

We had snow just a couple days ago... had to brush off the car in the morning. I wish I were joking :ph34r:

Guys, lets keep the discussion on the appropriate thread please.
post #13603 of 13915
Yes. Let's see a photo here, and then talk about it in a completely different thread. Makes sense.
