DIY Cardas Golden Cross

I've been led to believe it is possible to make your own Cardas Golden Cross Speaker cable and thus save yourself hundreds of $$$.

I find it hard to believe and doubt it would sound as good as factory originals but hey maybe I'm wrong.

Has anyone tried it? If so How did you do it and how did they turn out?
You can buy the real deal used and save a bundle. Why bother trying to copy a patented design?
I don't neccesarily wish to copy a patented product. I've been led to beileve that you can buy the wire in bulk and terminat and wrap them yourself. In what ever fashion you wish and thus eliminate skin effect.

Seems far fetched but I thougght I'd ask
