The website www.javootoo.com provides links to lots of different look and feels. I don't think there are any tutorials on how to make a look and feel there, but some of them are open source, so you can see how they were made.

I'm not really sure if you are asking how to build custom TableModels in the next question, or if you want to build custom Swing components using Model-View-Controller architecture.

If you want to build custom table models, you should look at the classes DefaultTableModel and AbstractTableModel, and the TableModel interface. DefaultTableModel implements most of the functionality you will probably need for most stuff, so in most cases you can just subclass it.

If you are asking about building custom Swing widgets using MVC, take a look at an overview of Swing Architecture at Sun.
