Sounds like a good job share possibility. I'll do the work & you drink the beer.... sorted.
Only problem is, I drink beers. Bugger, just as we thought we had a plan

Seriously though Ian,

Laggin is right.  It's not as hard as you'd imagine.
If you go at it slowly & copy another wheel I'm sure you be fine.

Some sort of truing stand is a must, but this can be done with an old pair of forks or even the rear of your bike turned upside down.
Much easier with a truing stand though.

Have a look at this http://www.sheldonbrown.com/wheelbuild.html

All hail Sheldon Brown RIP!
