Yes, you can. Or a wrist-watch even.

I found that if you have a 1-mHz crystal, you can build a 1-mhz oscillator very easily.  Just use a 555 timer IC and build a standard oscillator.... BUT, instead of using a timing CAPACITOR, just place the 1-mHz CRYSTAL in  that spot instead.  Not only will you have an oscillator that is NEAR 1 megahertz... it will be LOCKED onto that frequency.  If memory serves me, I believe you can find 1-mhz crystals inside of many remote controll (infrared) transmitters.

Yes, or build one around a CMOS inverter.

It would be easier to just buy at 1mhz osc.  On the surplus market they are not very expensive.  Finding that exact value is pretty random.  And on the one's you find you have not other spec's on them.  There are ways to tune some osc.  You might look into that.

And buying something is always the best way to get it "soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon"".

Time and money are fungible, to a limited extent.
