Hints for building modern open design Reso

I am entertaining the idea of building a Reso for myself.  I have a nice soundwell design Reso and would like to a have a modern open/post/baffle design for the contrast in tone.  Like many in todays economy I can't afford to buy a new one but I have a shop and some woodworking skills.  I have several good books on guitar construction but cannot find any resources that show how the modern style Reso is put together.  I know there are some builders lurking here and was wondering if anyone would be willing to share some construction notes/pictures/pointers/hints, etc.


Details concerning the design, engineering and implementation of resophonic guitars.
