Copying a wheel is a doable way of building a wheel. There's a sequence to lacing that'll get the wheel done up with the least effort, and if you'se simply copying an existing wheel you're unlikely to stumble onto that one.
But lacing is just putting the bits in a working order, to get a road-worthy wheel you must be able to true and tension properly.
I don't want to rain on your parade, and I do encourage you to build your own, but it's really much more to it than the lace up. Unless you have amazing mechanical skill reading up on it first is well worth it.
