Rockbound and other similar rigs are fun to experiment with.  But it may not be the rig you wish to use every day or night.  Many reasonable price rig kits exist with a VFO of some kind.  A decent receiver encourages making QSOs - and many of these rigs offer good crystal filters (they are made from inexpensive PC crystals often matched for a narrower response).  A few watts does come in handy compared to those simpler rigs that output hundreds of milliwatts.  As for rigs currently available check out qrpkits.com (I have a PFR-3 three band rig I really like) and the 4 State QRP Cyclone.  After building and operating a kit, then consider if you wish to build a homebrew rig and for that I would start simple.

Someone mentioned this one.  It has an option so you can have 3 crystals available.  Might be interesting.
