Why no Bash
Loads of people will be asking why no bash until level 10 - as it is your base skill.
i will answer that simply with cool down, survivability and attack speed. By level 10 - how fast will will your FV be attacking? I can imagine not very. Max walk has an insane distance and even faster cool down, and backtrack will give you the extra chance to survive a gank. Along witha poor mans and vanguard you should be able to free farm a lane, even with a hero in it harassing you.
Any good farmer (and void is easy to farm with) should get poor mans, boots and ring of health in little to no time. each wave (near perfect) will give you 200-250 gold a wave. so realistically boots and poor mans within the first four minutes. ring by the 6-8 minute mark.
your large walk should allow to dive in for the last hit when your team mates gank. A good team will deliberately give that to you. 9x out of 10 in a clash initiated by your opposing team they will dive on you - hopefully your 25% evasion with backtrack will allow you to walk out after all the disables. (remember you back track the damage - not the effect - you will still be stunned, slowed etc) and even turn around once your team returns and get some kills.
Mask of madness is ok - but there are better builds for void to solve his attack speed problems. don't be too hasty to get life steal - in reality he actually doesn't need it. With high DPS a good chrono could kill 1 or 2 heroes before the effects where off, your team mates disables should help take the rest. life steal can come later in the game or maybe never if you have a team member with vlads.
late game items are up to you. After vang I tend to get a yasha, and see how it goes from there. You can quickly find yourself with 3k without noticing after a few good clashes and continued free farm (towers too) and could go straight butterfly solving attack speed issues with high dps immediately!! 25 minutes is your time to shine, before that stick to your lane - farm, get last hits with the help of your team mates - and don't rely on the lucky bash to disable a hero. The amount of times evasion has saved my *** over me getting a kill on 1 bash is significant.. try it ;-)
