As with is other book, Martin Koch tells you ALL you need to know to build a beautiful instrument.
From building 2 types of lap steel's from A to Z, to making the case and even making your own pickups, this book as it all.
This is my second book by Martin Koch and let me just say that his books are a gold mine of information from cover to cover.
Martin Koch also as a website that compliments his books where you can ask questions, see other instruments people have built and there are also good tools such as Fret Calculator and stuff.
Trust me......if you want to build your own instrument, you will not regret purchasing this book.

Just what you need... May 7 2007
By Robert C. Lester - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
..to build your first Lap Steel. The book is well laid out, clear, and well suited to a beginners approach. I had never done any musical woodworking projects, and this book (Along with the guidance of some skilled woodworking friends) walked me comfortably through the steps to completing a good looking and good sounding lap steel. Very rewarding purchase. Can't recommend it enough.

It's pretty easy to build your own lap steel Jan. 23 2008
By MarkC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is easy reading and enjoyable. I am making a steel guitar that is a mix of the first and second example. The dimensions are very helpful as is the suggested parts list. I would purchase this book again.

Great book March 2 2013

This is truly a great little book on building lap steels. Martin shows you how to do it using a minimum of tools that most home owning do it yourselfers will have on hand.
I was expecting some good information about matching impedence Oct. 25 2014
By W. Obendorf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Along with making the guitar, I was expecting some good information about matching impedence, grounding, and all the electrical tricks. It was really more of a woodworking book. First thing the author wants you to do is build a woodworking bench and vise, buy a few hundred dollars worth of tools, etc. So before you actually get to building the lap steel, you spent about $1000 building a wood shop. If your objective is to obtain the steel guitar, it is probably cheaper and certainly quicker to just go buy that instead of thinking about building it yourself.
