this question really belongs in carpentry section, as i assume when you say appliances you mean power tools

table saw, biscuit cutter, planer, sander, doweling jig, router etc...

It depends on the desk style. A simple flat top. rectangular desk could be done with a screwdriver, a hand saw and a hammer. You can buy legs and a top right from the store. Cut some 1x4's for a skirt and attach the legs.
If you want drawers, you will need power tools.
