I recently purchased "Build Your Own Telescope, 2nd Edition" by Richard Berry from Sky and Telescope's web store (see my post below). The book has several step-by-step projects, including a 6" scope. There isn't too much theory in the book, so if you're looking to understand the hows and whys of designing a good scope, I'd recommend you look for a different book. But, if you just want to build something that will work, it might be the book for you.
