I want to make a small jet engine. Hopefully will make one in my free time.

Step 1: Eat a crapload of beans Step 2: Get lighter Step 3: Light lighter, and fart. BOOM! Depending on the toughness of your colon, your distance/amount of scar tissue may vary.

. Google it!
. As westfw mentions, a pulse-jet (or similar) would probably be a good first project. Any type of turbine is probably out of your reach, especially with your budget.
I believe there are quite a few hobby turbine jets built out of truck turbos? Wouldn't that be affordable?

Depends on your tools and machining skills, and what you want the thrust to weight ratio to be like. My general impression is that a heavy pulse-jet motor uses a relatively small amount of raw materials, and quite a bit of careful machining.
