First of all, it depends on what kind of jet engine you want. I'm pretty sure that valveless pulse jets are the easiest to make though.

Like and7barton says. But here's an Instructable:

The best way is to get yourself a truck turbocharger and then base your engine on that. There's loads of plans for turbo-based jet engines on the internet. I built one myself which powered a go-kart. It ran on propane gas. You'll need to do a fair bit of fabrication, most of which will be the combustion chamber and flame tube assembly. Mine worked, but I wouldn't build one again - it used two years and a lot of cash getting it to work properly. Next time, if there IS a next time, I'll buy an out-of-hours REAL aircraft engine. These can be bought for around the same money as I must have spent in total, and it will work properly in the end. These regularly appear for sale on Ebay.
