I got my desk from our University's salvage operation... $10 or so, and 
built of really nice and thick (probably 1" thick) wood.  See if you can 
find a university surplus operation around where you live.  Baring that, 
a used office furnature place might be a good thing to try, or shop 
around near dumpsters in commercial areas :)
