Beginners Project: Need a schematics for a small simple EL84 SE (or PSE) amp

I´ve decided to build a simple EL84 amp as my first tube project. This first project will be more about learning than to build an extremely good amp.

For instance, I found a cheap universal OPT at a great price (About US $25 each): http://www.demostenes.no/endr1be.asp?Kode=3956

I´d really like to use either those trannies, or a couple of Hammond universal OPTs from the 125x line, maybe the 125B would be suitable for an EL84 SE amp and the 125C for a PSE amp with two EL84 per channel?

The Hammond OPTs mentiones cost about the same as the first one I linked to, which is made by an italian company called Novarria.

What I´m looking for right now is a suitable schematics. I´ve read the thread about SE EL84 amps and really like this one:

Please give me some advise. I´ve done some calculating and it looks like it would cost around US $100 to build the amp in the picture.
