If you want some information about construction techniques or run into any gotchas, make sure to let me know, I'll help out however I can.
My overwhelming advice is to clean the copper ends before you start soldering. Use sandpaper or a scotchbrite pad, and make sure to use the acid flux. If you've ever sweated a copper joint, you can do this. It's the same thing.
