I have always played around with the idea of building my own speakers for my theater, but do not possess the background knowledge in electrical, crossovers and soldering that seems to be a prereq for taking on this kind of project. Does anyone know of a good site that would spell the steps out for someone like myself to get their foot in the door?

It looks like a very rewarding hobby, but I would be afraid to ruin something because I lack a basic understanding of the procedure.

First off there is a sticky with some building pointers. Its not really a guide but its a good read for a few tips.
Parts express has a number of tutorials here - http://www.parts-express.com/resources.cfm
Specifically check out this one - http://www.parts-express.com/resources/building-a-crossover.cfm
Here is one for box building. The page is oriented towards subs but the concepts can be applied to speakers. http://www.subwoofer-builder.com/speaker-building.htm

Dont be afraid to ask questions, everyone has to start somewhere

Several good tutorials here.

Also, If you want to play around with XO simulation in Speaker Workshop,

Especially Jay Butterman's manual near the bottom.

(I'm not allowed to post links. Cuts down on spam, but pretty annoying.)
