You'll need to know the length of cable you want.

In terms of pods you either need to:
- Buy them
- Make them from wood and seal them (they will still look crap unless you are really skilled)
- borrow or buy a mould and make them from Grp
- Build a mould and make from Grp. A simple mould is not too hard from mdf if you remember the part has to come back out too! But if you want to play around to get an ideal size etc you will need to think about making a plug first which adds another element of complication. If that doesn't make sense then I would look at purchases...
