Need a desk ASAP, or looking for a way to squeeze another workspace into your home? Most of these desks are so simple to assemble, the inspiration image alone is all the how-to you'll need. First, pick a base—wood or metal sawhorses, storage cabinets, and trestle legs will all do the trick—then select a work surface, such as plywood or plexiglass. (Just be sure your base is sturdy enough to support the weight of whatever top you choose). Put the two together, and you have a desk you can assemble in under a minute.
