I think you will need a lot of cable to get even to 10nF value. Also coax
usually has air gaps which will ionise and lower the voltage to maybe just a
few hundred volts...
For what you may pay on coax you might be better buying some flat sheets of
plastic to make some flat plate caps instead...
My 2 cents worth.....
