If you know anyone with tools and woodworking experience I would say have them help you make it. This would help you get the feel for if your going to want to continue with woodworking. Some people think they want to but after starting realize its not for them, others try one simple project and love it. The tools are not cheep and the cost of getting tools specifically for this project only really don't make sense.
So if you don't have someone to help you as I mentioned,I'm with cabinetman about having a shop make it.
