Ok, I need some help again. does anyone know how I can reproduce this kind of geometry? I remember doing something similar to this years ago, but can't remember how I did it.

Twist tool
or create using splines (probly use the same one)
to weave, then rail extrude

Yes, but those aren't just twisted they look inter weaved.

I think you could just model small sections where they intertwine and overlap to get that right, and only
halfe the side perhaps, and the clone it several times, I do believe william vaughn has some kind of similar tutorial, but for a different model I think that was for a microphone metal head.

There's actually a good chunk of video tutorials that have been buried in a few spots on the FTP site... here are some of them:
