I've actually had some tentative sucess as full AP maokai but i haven't played him too much yet

that being said i don't build glass cannon

Catalyst
Ionian boots
RoA
Deathcap(im doing really well)/Zhonyas
Abyssal

So though i'm still only building ap items, im building ones with survivability, haven't tried rylais yet cuz i get hp from RoA and i prefer the resists at the point but im gonna get there

for the long version I wrote a guide here (http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=533174).

TL;DR version:

(depending on whether you're the team's main tank or not)
mana crystal + hpot + mpot / health crystal
boots (whatever you want, usually merc for me)
rod of ages
then, in whatever order is necessary depending on the other team:
lich bane / frozen heart / warmog's armor / force of nature / banshee's veil

i normally tank really hard for my team.. so i get

heart of gold,
sorcerers shoes (to help the sapling hit a little harder)
sunfire
FoN
warmogs
upgrade the HoG
and then, if the game really goes on this long i get rabbadons to start doing more dmg.
