I’ve always liked the “Magic Braid” look on leather, so I worked up a blank for it yesterday.
There are two here, one for a 3-strand braid, and the other for a more ambitious 5-strand braid.
Both “should” braid down to about a 7" diameter band when they are done.
I’ve left a little 1/8" marker circle for where the snaps would be placed (centered and with correct overlap) - those can either be cut or engraved to help with punching the holes for snap placement, or just omitted.

I was also thinking that it might be fun to play with engraving on the blanks sometime down the road…
