A circle cutter, hole saw, or router fitted with a circle cutter jig. The circle cutter requires a drill press running at slow speed. If you are using a circle cutter or hole saw, drill just until the center bit pokes through, flip the desktop, and drill from the other side to prevent splintering.

You better have one helluva drill for that 4" hole saw!
Here's a ready made opportunity for the infamous Roto-Zip with it's circle cutter attachment.

That's a pretty big hole. What's it for? Is there some chance that a smaller, less unsightly hole might do the trick? Maybe two 1" holes a few inches apart, joined with a sabre saw to make an oval?
Several companies sell plastic trim that dresses up wire holes. They come in various sizes and shapes.
