Are you reffering to something like this?
Head-Up Display - Facts, Encyclopedia article, and Discussion forum
or a Head mounted display?

Pretty impossible to design and build in a home workshop the best way I can think of would be to use old phone screens and try and copy a commercial design then perfect. HMD's are infamous for burning retinas and being poor quality so make sure you turn the brightness right down so that you don't damage your eyes.
