As someone who has tried to build several motors before, my advice is don't. The cost in parts alone will far exceed anything you can buy out there. I've seen used motors for as low as $500 (+$100 shipping) and the rolls of copper wire alone will cost you almost that if you build a 10kW motor.
Local industrial salvage yards also have a pretty good supply of series-wound DC motors.
