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. :)

    I can hardly hear this word.

    Is it related to the bord in smörgåsbord?
