Default Rod Building tips

I was pondering building a few rods this fall, a 7' 3wt, an 8'4/5 wt and maybe a 9' 5/6 wt, I had some questions about the different components required, first off what are the Winding checks? and what do they do? second, looking at cork grips, what is the difference with the "hood", there is a round hood, a recessed hood and no hood(i guess), and lastly what type and size thread and what glue/epoxy would you suggest to finish off the eyes and hook keeper?
