It is difficult to estimate the size of the lemon tree in the photo, but the trunk appears thicker than the extension cord. I think it's at least ready for cleft grafting.

I don't have any particularly favorite websites for cleft grafting citrus, but if you do a google search for 'cleft graft citrus' you will find some good tutorials, and also some instructional videos on YouTube.

It would be best if you have several rootstocks when learning, so you're likely to have some successes.
