Dishing in a wheel

I'm about to rebuild the rear wheel on a '59 Raleigh Tourist. It has the Sturmey-Archer AW 3-speed hub. Is there a need to dish-in this wheel and if so, how do you do it?

An SA hub does not require dishing, the spokes are the same on both sides. You can lace it the same as a front wheel.

Just center the rim between the locknuts as you would on any front or rear wheel.

You can center the rim by flipping the wheel in the stand.

Believe it or not, a dish gauge is very easy to make yourself. I used a nice stiff piece of plywood as the basis for mine. Making sure the edge was straight, I cut a notch for the hub and then used two small bolts and a small piece of metal to make a sliding indicator that goes against the lock nut. Then you just flip the wheel over to see if both sides meet the end of the indicator. Here's my awesome MS Paint rendition:
