Cable Management with glass desk?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I see a lot of people drilling or nailing in racks and what not to hold and manage all the cables and cords but with a glass desk, what kind of options can I can? I have an L Shaped glass desk aside from the metal legs, which I would not like to attach anything to.

You can always use a spring like wrap for your cables. You can bundle them all together into one large, covered group. It wouldn't hide them, but it could make everything look neater. It what we use here at work with our exposed desks.

Couldn't you maybe run some wall-colored cable conduit along the wall, just below where the glass table meets it? Then put the cabling into that and exit where needed.

Looking at that video reminded me how much I don't like those little power bricks. I put in a dedicated 12V power supply and run some of my 12V devices (routerboard, dsl modem) wired directly to it.
