Can you build an ipod? No. That's Apple's, and they won't just let you have the plans (even if they did, you don't have the equipment to build it).

Can you build an mp3 player? Yes! Here's a nice one. http://www.mictronics.de/?page=mp3stick There are other options out there as well, but they do generally revolve around exotic or expensive parts. Here's another example: http://makezine.com/daisy/

If you don´t care about size, you can use an old 486 / Pentium computer running Freedos and MpxPlay... I did it once and worked really fine (God bless the SB16). Google for it and you´ll find lots of references.
