Default First rod advice

I'm retiring soon. I'd like to build a fly rod or two. My first attempt at rod building.

Should I start with cheap components - blank, reel seat, cork, etc.? This on the theory I'll likely have some things go wrong.

Or, should I start with more expensive components on the theory that most mistakes are fixable?

What say you, all?
