I am looking for a guide on how to make wooden musky baits?

my grandson is trying to learn the art of making his own musky lures

Check out the link below. On the bottom is a list of other links to checkout also. Have him sign into and register in the forums. There you will have to look for, but will find a user named whittler. You'll find him in the Tacklemaking section of the forums. He is the author of the crankbait article, and makes lures for different fish species. He is a big help, and will answer any emails you send to him, unless you use ebonics when you type messages, he hates that, and will not respond. By ebonics I mean words like "eye" instead of "I" etc.. you get the point. If thats not what your looking for, it will at least get you started. The 2nd link is for his profile on the forum page, and the 3rd link has a picture of his work. I suggest you join the forums also. There are lots of people on there to help also. Have fun and tight lines.
