I would not pre-buy materials at this point - at least not expensive stuff which seasoned professional luthiers are advising against it... (Such as the flat sawn rosewood...)

I am Speaking from the voice of experince here.... Learn from my mistakes when it comes to heeding the advice of guys who have been doing it as their day job to put money on the table... There are vendors who will tell you all sorts of sweet and wonderful things when it comes to making a valuable sale... I have paid for some expensive learning like this....

There are several very good reasons for not spending a bunch of money buying up a bunch of stuff now... You pretty well think you know what you really want to do once you get things together... You really think you know pretty well what you are looking for.. And 10 guitars from now - your idea of what is great or desirable to you vs what is not is going to be different.

Hi Pat,
Here is a picture of the size 1 I'm working on. For some reason the camera is not catching the colors right and is making things too yellow. I'm still getting used to this new software.
Nice! Was that sold as bdr?

No, it was sold as BRW, and had that nice fragrant flowery rosewood smell. Doesn't make any difference to me, and I don't know of a way to distinguish one from the other. I'm trying a wax finish on this one (a few more coats to go).
