Hard to say since master is a big word. In any case, that depends if your interested in doing it from code only or are planning in using an IDE form palettes.

A good place to start could be oracle swing tutorial. There are a lot of books out there that cover a lot of content of the swing api.

It all ends up in having smaller questions like how I make a menu that looks like office 2007? Ans. You could use flamingo instead of the normal menu.

How I add Drag and Drop functionality to something or things like that.

Moving to our GUIs forum, where we usually discuss such questions.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
