Default Noob question

So, assuming that I am reasonably handy, how long would it take to build a rod if I started with a kit from Cabela's or the like? I mean both in terms of hours of work and also in minimum time from delivery of the kit to first cast assuming I have plenty of free time to do the building. Aside from issues of pride and enjoying fishing with something I've made, how will the finished product fish when compared with a commercial rod based on the same blank?

I really shouldn't be thinking about building a rod, but I have to admit that you guys are tempting me.....
