i dont know any websites and i cant explain it to you because it will get very confusing and i couldnt sit here and write that much on that but you will need a truing stand unless you have time to sit around forever holding the axle barely tighten 1 spoke the move the otherside and tighten that 1 a little then move back to the otherside to another one and keep crossing over and thats after you laced the wheel and thats a total other story but basically its a more advanced mechanic repair and a truing stand is a must or you will shot yourself before you get your wheel completely true without the stand, but i have laced and trued a wheel without a stand and it isnt perfect but close and it took me 1 hour to lace(i take my time) and then 2 days non stop of truing

that's how to build a wheel.
it's really good and easy to follow.

yeah you could do that but if your brakes are a bit off then your wheel will be off by alot revenge makes brakes that can be used as a truing stand
