According to an interview on Fox News done by 14 year old Jackson Oswalt from Memphis, Tennessee, and his parents, it took Jackson one and a half years of hardwork in his family’s playroom which was converted into a nuclear laboratory, and an investment of $8000-$10000 which his parents made on the project. He accomplished it using the information from the Open Source Fusor Research Consortium forum, an online forum for amateur physicist, and bought off parts of eBay, which weren’t exactly what he required and he had to modify them. “I started searching for things on the internet about nuclear things, because that’s what interests me,” he said. Finally just before his 13th birthday, Jackson succeeded in achieving the reaction he desired: two deuterium atoms combined. Experts from the Research Consortium verified that the reaction had actually taken place.
