Your own.. from scratch, or merely a packaging of the changes you tend
to make to the base stage3 when you start a build? From scratch, I
believe the tool you're looking for is called catalyst (see link 
below). Otherwise, all a stage3 is... in the long run... is a tarred
up copy of a system without anything mounted (no proc, dev, sys, etc).
A common thing many people tend to do is oft referred to as a 'stage4'
(link ), in which they merely make all their changes, install their
choice software, and then archive the whole pristine build before
going on with actual use of the system.
