I would not go with cedar for first build - it is so easy to scratch, just put it wrong way on table and ding! You need a good working system before you can go with cedar.

Radius dish is a great helper, you use it for both sanding to radius and as a bed when gluing braces and gluing body. I would really have it imported if you can't find anybody around to make one for you. At least one for the back with like 15" radius. You can sort of get away with flat top. Look on ebay too.
