How To Create WordPress Themes From Scratch

wordpresstutorialI stumbled around and came to this REALLY good tutorial in three parts for creating a WordPress theme. Very well written, deep and easy to follow.

I'll be trying to follow this for my own designs since I'm working on a few websites now and really want to do everything from scratch, not use a pre-made template and modify it for my own use.

Anyway, here is the link to this theme. Again, it's well written and everything. I'm impressed.
