Default DIY Bass Practice Amp Out of Household Items

I'd like to create a standalone bass practice headphone amp out of some parts I have sitting around.

I have an old Dean Bass In A Box which is easy to take apart:

and an old creative Zen 512 mb MP3 player (which already has a broken case but the circuits are fully intact and working):

I'm thinking of wiring the headphone out to a volume pot and putting in a blend pot to blend the signal from the Bass In A Box and the MP3 player and wire up some common power supply that powers both the mini-amplifier and the mp3 player and I'd house them in some sort of nice housing together.

I have no idea how to do all this, but I can solder well and can work well enough with wood if necessary for the housing. I'd love for your input! Thanks!
