I found a few on the Web that might interest you.  (Linguistic 
digression: "tandoor" is the name of the oven; "tandoori" is an 
adjective describing the food.  Kinda like the difference, in American 
cuisine, between "smoker" and "smoked".) 

I Googled: 'build tandoor oven' and found three sites that looked useful.

The most detailed site is a British one.  He went with the most 
expensive solution: buying a commercially produced tandoor liner.  I 
have no idea if these are available in the U.S.

This one is not as detailed, but does use a large terracotta flowerpot 
as a substitute for a commercial tandoor liner

This one uses fire cement inside an oil drum

Good luck!
