Wow! Lots of good suggestions! Thanks, folks, for adding to my store of
knowledge. I'm still pretty new at this. I think my best bet is to go with
one of the Rockler grommets. They have some real nifty looking ones. I
didn't realize what was in their product line.
In checking their web site, I found they have a retail outlet in a nearby
town, so I'll stop by over the weekend and see what I can pick up.
Next time I do something like this, I'll have a whole repertoire of
techniques to draw on.
Do some research on the Philadelphia Experiment. Reportedly, after the last
test, there were crewman imbedded in the deck of the ship. You could use
something like that to pass wires through the desk without drilling. Or,
rout a hole and use a grommet made for that.
Lots of good suggestions, but not the "best" way to solve your problem. The
desk is against the wall so you can't drop the wires. You don't want to
drill a hole and I can understand that. The solution is simple.
Make a decorative series of notches along the back of the desktop. that
will allow the wires to go between the desk and wall. then carefully place a
strip of duct tape over the wires from the edge to the appliance. Duct tape
fits in all occasions and no one will notice it. Offers some safety from
getting things snagged in the cords.
Please be sure to post photos once in place so we may all admire your work.
we got a set of the 5.whatever gig cordless phones.. came with 2 phones and we
added an extra for the shop.. they're fantastic!
Just put the base unit somewhere other than the desk and the small footprint
cordless base/phone on the desk.. YMMV
