My best recommendation is; DON'T put a time line on it!! It'll take as long as it takes, and maybe a bit more! The whole idea of building a rod your self is for the enjoyment of it! HAVE FUN with it! Put on wraps, then take them off again! Do it till it feels natural. When/if it becomes a frustration or looses its fun ... put it down, and come back to it later. Don't push it.
Regardless of how it turns out, that will be your first rod! You did it! Fish it with pride!!
