Reproduce product from a patent doc

Coming from a person who simply has an interest in science, specifically in conjunction with entrepreneurship, I was wondering how difficult it would be for someone with a scientific background such as a scientist or chemical engineer to reproduce a product with only the patent document available?  So the original inventor is not around and we are assuming the rights to use the patent would be available.  Is this something that's much much "easier said than done" or would someone with some experience in these fields probably be able to figure out what equipment is needed and make the product?
