Oops, sorry then, not sure about UK. I might ask some family members later, but I doubt those companies are in the UK.

yea, if you build two boxes for legs out of 2x4's and then put two 2x4's connecting those and then the ply wood is on top of that you will have a nice sturdy desk for like $20. Just remember to do some cross bracing.

Do what I did for my desk. Go to the UK equivalent of Staples and buy two cabinet drawers and then go to the UK equivalent of Home Depot and buy a 6 foot (2 meters?) counter top. put the counter top on the drawers and BOOM! like magic you have yourself and big durable desk. I've had mine for almost 9 years and I love it! the whole thing will probably cost you $80.

Go to your region and search for used desks. I got a decent used desk that will hold up and looks nice for just $20 used. If craigslist turns up nothing, hit up other classified sites or the newspaper. Or you can just do other suggestions and make a durable desk that works, maybe not so pretty though.
