How I do it:

Truing:
Find where the wobble is.
Tighten the spokes on the opposite side in which the wobble is going.
If you have to loosen the spokes on the side the wobble is going.
Keep going until it is straight.

Lacing:
Look up a guide online and follow that for the spoke pattern, hard to explain in text.
After they're all in, tighten the nips down to where you just can't see the thread.
Keep going around tightening every nip a quarter of a turn until everything is tight, true as necessary.

tape the end of a spoke so it dont scratch the rim. tape it to frame/fork. use it as an eye guide while truing. basically turns your bike into a truing stand.
