Go and buy an ESC, they are not simple devices to make and any screw-up (software or hardware) will likely destroy the electronics (and/or motor).

They can be obtained from a variety of places much cheaper than you could build one, its just not worth the effort.

As desertstalker says, the electronics is not so easy. In fact the semiconductor manufacturers have reference designs to try to make things easier, but you then need to make PCBs and solder small surface mount devices (reliably) etc etc, all rather tricky. Standard ESCs is the way to go.
