A lot of machining. Surface the whole thing, mills the slots, drill and mill the hole for the tool holder and more. I used an a very large vertical mill at school. Took many days. There is a step by step instruction with pictures that I followed. I can look up the site if anyone is interested.

I always wanted one. I had a Burke #4 mill. It had a table travel of 9”.
You need 12 or more.
You need to mill the V groves for the ways and mill the top surface and size the bore for the top slide.
Not trivial.
Need something like a Bridgeport.
