There's an IKEA store a few kilometers from where I live, so why not go there and look what's on offer? I did, and here's the result of my endeavour: a cheap home recording desk that looks far better that I deserve for my stinginess.

It is not the most robust desk, but at least I've got one now. I can always improve stability, for example by adding another shelf console, or a trestle on one side of the desk. In its current state the desk consists of the following standard IKEA items:
|Qty.||Article||Article no.||Unit price||Sum|
|1||LINNMON table top||002.513.43||CHF 29.95||CHF 29.95|
|4||ADILS table leg||702.179.73||CHF 5.00||CHF 20.00|
|1||EKBY JÄRPEN shelf||200.943.47||CHF 14.95||CHF 14.95|
|2||EKBY TÖRE console||502.510.29||CHF 7.50||CHF 15.00|
All together a tad below CHF 80. That's EUR 65.87 / USD 83.20 / GBP 51.76. I challenge anyone to beat that!
