Jumping into the steampunk modding craz, or simple looking for a way to make your case mod look unique?  Maybe you just need better cable management and are sick of zip ties slowly chewing through your insulation.  Whatever the reason, drop by MAKE:Blog for a tutorial in the ancient art of cable lacing.  Not only is it attractive, it works rather well.

“The bundling is done with a technique called “cable lacing”. A series of knots and stitches from a continuous piece of wax impregnated cotton or twine are used to bundle cables together. It takes some practice, but it’ll outperform zipties in that it won’t crush the insulative jackets on wiring and that it’s not going to shift axially on you if it’s loose. Likewise, my bundles have a rectangular cross section. Zipties can’t conform and keep bundle shapes other than ellipses.”
