I've never heard of that game, but Google brings up lots of images of the boards. Many/most appear to be a solid board, but it might be difficult finding a nice stable piece of wood that wide. Dimensions I found on one site (mastersgames.com) are approximately 55 x 31 cm.
The board itself looks easy enough to make, but I'd guess that the bulk of the work would be in the finishing so the coins slide smoothly.
If you make one, post pics!
