I will give my opinions as follows assuming cost is a concern. I second what wormil said. A “previously owned” counter top makes for a fantastic desk surface. Often you can find these free or cheap. Cut to size with a circular saw. For your drawer stacks, have you considered getting a couple of Ikea or similar narrow drawer stacks or small dressers? No major tools required. For your floating shelf, I can readily think of 3 options. Option1: A 2nd hand desk top cut to the size you want with a circular saw. Option 2: A shelf or side from a bargain set of shelves cut to size with circular saw. Option 3: I know Fred Meyer had a “free flaoting: shelf that could mount to a wall with screws.

Possible tools: Circular saw Pencil Square Straightedge Drill Screws
