Can you get termites in your house from used furniture?

I brought a desk home from work that they did not want anymore, but I seem to remember that we had termites at work. They had the building treated, but can the termites come into my home via the desk? The desk is made out of particle board, not solid wood.

How do I make sure termites will stay away from my wooden outdoor table I am refurbishing?

I am trying to convert an old cable reel (think super big thread holder) Anyway it is solid wood and I am staining, then varnishing the whole thing and tiling the top. Any way to keep termites from getting to it? There is no way i can get to the middle which is solid wood as well. Any ideas on how to keep it safe from the elements I would appreciate. Thanks!
