I'd suggest buying standardized engines from Estes or another certified supplier. Much safer, much more predictable, and you can probably get ones that are more than large enough. (Someone recently launched a christmas tree using a large cluster of these,)

Forget it kid, you'll put your eye out.

But if you really want to do it.  Google "diy rocket" homemade rocket" etc. and you'll find lots of stuff on the internet.  But realize that it ain't called rocket fuel for nuthin'.

P.S. If you use more than 5 words on the title it will come out of the filters sooner.  Otherwise it has to be looked at by a human and they get lazy sometimes and it can take 48 hours for your question to come out.
