Default Rod Building advice needed

I have decided that I would like to try building my own fly rod. I've read a lot and seen a lot of videos on the subject. I'm looking for some recommendations on a few things that I'm going to need to start. What kind of finish do you prefer? I've heard a lot of praise for thread master lite. How many coats should I plan on using? What type/size/brand of wrapping thread is usually used? How fast of drying motor will I need? Some say less than 10rpm, some use 20rpm+. That's all I could think of for now, but if you have any other recommendations on things that I may need to know please feel free to let me know.

Thanks for the help,
Chase
