Well I have exactly 3.7 trillion tips, but we can start with a couple. I have made my living as a carpenter for over 35 years and my main concern for myself and my employees was and is SAFTEY. I know boring. But you can never be too careful. Other than that, watch videos of Luthiers on YouTube...there are a lot.... you will pick up great techniques that you can tweak to meet yer needs. Common sense is always good...if you have a guitar ...look at it, how are the tuners installed, how high are the strings and so on. But mostly, have fun. :)

ALWAYS watch your fingers when working with power tools, and work from plans, even if you draw your own.

Don't work too fast,
