I've been searching for the document that walks you through creating and deploying a REST web service, but I just can't locate the correct manual.
Can somebody please jolt my memory and point me to the correct document?

Thanks, Tim. I do not know how I managed to overlook it.

I second this. We developped a bunch of REST services and are now switching to Web handlers to implement them. Despite some more work (not so much really) at the beginning, they allow much more control and evolutivity than REST.
Furthermore PSC has (wrongly IMHO) stated that REST webservices are only about JSON, thus preventing e.g. any application/xml consuming REST WS; with webhandlers you can overcome whatever artificial limiitation they implemented in REST WS.
Sometimes it works better to get know something by example. Below are couple of great videos and example that I have used and found very useful.
