Isn't table and desk the same thing ?

A desk = ett skrivbord

The desk = skrivbordet

Several desks = flera skrivbord

The desks = skrivborden

Ah, literally 'writetable', yes? That's rather cool, hah!

Is this word at all related to the English board and Scots bord, meaning "table"?

Yes, English "board" and Swedish bord are both derived from an eventual mutual root, but I wouldn't call them cognates. No idea about Scots, sorry. :)
