Newbie at wooden bicycle building

I have been riding bicycles for years, and now I need more information and learn how to bulid a wooden bicycle. I just have a little experence with woodworking and no experence working with steel and welding. Where online can I find Wooden Bicycle Building Plans for the beginner (hopefully no welding is required to build a wooden bicycle)? In these plans and would these wooden bicycles hold my weight at lease 260lbs or more?

Their are plans I see from time to time to build wooden recumbents offered on ebay.
This would be a good place to start http://www.homestead.com/bikerodnkustom/woodeye.html

Try google or dogpile searches, I ran across quite a few wooden bike sites whilst looking for diy recumbents, unfortunately I didn't save the links
