It'll cost under $500, depending on the workshop/tools you have available, how fancy you want to get, etc.

And making your own neck is way overblown in difficulty; if you're scared, get a pre-slotted fingerboard off stewmac and you'll be fine.

And Titebond original glue works well for everything as far as I've gotten.

EDIT: if it's fretless, it'll be super-easy.
