Hi Warren
I've just gotten back into building rods. Forgot how much fun it is.
I'd say: take your time, don't be afraid to take your wraps apart & redo. Practice with the epoxy finish on a test piece before the actual rod finishing. Try making your own cork grips out of cork rings. Lot's of cool looks to be acheived!!

A lot of valuable techniques at this site: rodbuildingforum.com

Have fun
