I'm thinking too much is better than too little...if you need more frame halfway through assembly, you'd be glad if you grabbed an extra or two.
Part out what you don't use, utilize as much as possible, discard as little as possible.
Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Work as safely and as organized
as the construction process allows.
And please share some pics with us! If you can't grab some pics while building, let us see the completed bike.
a steel. I think welding it to mild carbon steel is no problem. Aluminum and stainless are the ones that need special goodies.
