An 'ible on how to braid kumihimo with a maru-dai? Answered

Can anyone make an Instructable on how to make a kumihimo braid with a maru dai? I've seen websites with tutorials for doing it by hand, but nothing for doing it with a maru dai. Maybe also include some patterns? Normally anyone seeking to learn how is recommended to the book, 250 Braids from Japan to Peru, or something else. However, i think we can do better. it would also hopefully make us the number 1 source for that method as well.
