A while ago I had a link to a website where a Spanish guy showed how he custom-built high-quality cajons (not the typical plywood-with-glue you see everyone else making), I'll try to find it for you. I found this to be a handy reference for cajons, though it doesn't go into building them:

CajonGuide.com

EDIT: This site has downloadable templates and a good description of the process.
