I made this braid spool last year. I've not used it yet as I haven't taken the time to learn how to do it. I'll get around to it some time though. For now it makes a good ornament. I'm not sure my wife would agree. I made it from a section of windfall branch I found. A Turk's Head in black paracord goes around it. I used a fid and white 1mm cord to highlight it. I think it really brings out the flow of it.
