A table consists of a series of embeded elements; the hyerarchy goes
somewhat like this (assume fo namespace):
                  <block>here is the actual content</block>
Since any of these elements can take borders, and they are inside one
another, you can end up with up to 5 glued borders - that's probably why
you perceive "lines of different width". Try adding margins to the elements
so you can see the borders separetely.
While "nice-looking" is a fairly subjective concept, try doing this:
1) use border-collapse="collapse" on the table element to make adjacent
borders overlap
2) use borders only in the table-cell to minimize confusion
I usually get "nice" tables, see the files attached. (Sorry if the FO is
not very readable, it was generated by XSLT. Try 'tidying' it.)

If brute force doesn't work, maybe you're not using enough brute force.

Can anyone provide me with an example of a 'nice' looking PDF table
generated with Fop. I have tried a few border options and end up with
lines of different width along different sides of the table and rows.

I do not have any more time to play with this and am hoping someone can
steer me in the right direction with an example or two.
