Depends on how well equipped your shop is. Honing the small end bushing to size is a relatively new process. The traditional process was reaming to size which is quite easy. The harder part is keeping the centerline of the small end square in all three planes with the centerline of the big end. This is of greater importance on a higher RPM and HP engines and of somewhat less importance on a low RPM and HP tractor engine. The traditional engine builder's shop used a jig to hold the reamer square. You could achieve acceptable results at home with a small milling machine/quality drill press/hand reamer and some creative fixturing.
