A lot of examples of tubed PS's search "power supply" in the front page...

You can use other tubes for that purpose...

The book "Build your own valve audio amps" by Tech/Elektor has a really well detailed section on building valve based power supplies. It's available at Jaycar for $39.95.

Well worth reading.
