You can buy them where everything to have a working amp is in one box, or you can buy everything separate.
Either way I think what you're doing and why you're doing it will gain you all the help you and you dad will need.
Like you said, you'll have a great amp , and something to pass on to younger generations with a good story behind it.
I personally would recommend the you look at Weber Amp Kits, and start with that.
Well by scratch build I meant, starting completely from scratch... Buying everything that I'll need separately. Although, I am pretty open to getting a kit for the first build (although my dad really doesn't wanna do that ;) ).
I have some woodworking experience, my dad has much more, but I believe we have all the tools we need right here at the house. If not, they're not far out of reach. Sheetmetal, I'm sure my dad could work with it, I haven't though.
I will look into the kits though for sure!
