    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:

    and....
    LW8 videos here:
