Questions on building/making an electric guitar?

I know, I already asked this, but figured it'd get more answers in music instead of DIY I'm building a guitar: I got the idea after finding an old Strat neck in my grandparents' basement. If it matters, it's a kind of SG-like design, double-cutaway pointy horns, but a bit more symmetrical, and the curves are different. Anyways. -I sanded down the neck to take off the old finish to custom paint some stuff. Is regular spray-on satin wood lacquer okay to refinish? (Yes, I prefer sating necks over glossy ones, I find them easier to slide my hands along) -The local hardware store has mahogany planks, 14" wide by 1" thick and 48" long: What kind of glue would be best for holding two pieces together, to make it 2" thick? -I've found nearly everything I need (save from pickups) on ...Is it a reliable company? -I'm making one with two pickups, one volume/one tone... Is this diagram accurate for the wiring? - For the control cavity, does it need to be shielded? Is it necessary, or just preferred? Yes, it's my first guitar I've built, and I'm prepared to spend hours and hours and hours working on it Any other tips or pointers would be appreciated, too Thanks much!
