Subject: Help...Please

Im a high school student and I really want to build a tesla coil for my 
science project.  I only have two weeks left and Im starting to panick.  
Ive been looking for detailed plans for quite a while, but had little 
success.  All the plans out there are vague and meant for experienced 
builders.  Anyway, I found a plan for a really wimpy solid state coil 
that uses 24v to power it, too wimpy for my tastes; but Im afraid Ill 
have to resort to those plans if I cant find others.  So what Im looking 
for is detailed instructions to build a simple coil with nonexotic parts 
and that  puts out some decent sparks.  For some reason I think Im 
asking too much, but I really hope some one can help....thank you for 
your time.
