You can make an LCD projector with an old LCD monitor, an overhead projector and a light source (or just a fresnel lens and a focusing lens, available online with a quick search).

LEDs with enough power to light an LCD projector are expensive- think hundreds of dollars.  Metal halide lamps are much cheaper, and easier to work with, but bulkier.

Making an LCD projector the size of a commercial one is going to be incredibly fiddly, difficult, and potentially more expensive than just buying a projector.  The smallest DIY ones I've seen are boxes about 1 x 1 x 2 feet.

Before you posted this question did you search instructables for an answer? IF not look at the right hand Pnl on this page and go from there.

As a passing thought your unlikely to get results that are as good as professional projectors unless you spend some cash on the project BUT an old 35mm slide projector may be a good place to start.
