I built a workspace out of plywood and set it up so that I could still take it down in about 20 minutes. The only thing lacking was some good lighting. Since most of my building occurred at night, this was a big annoyance.
I was lucky to order the tubes through a place that sent me several practice pieces to start on. Thanks http://www.cycle-frames.com/bicycle-frame-tubing/. When I got the box I was pretty excited to pull out these shiny tubes and ornate lugs.
Up next is starting out. Nervous for sure.
