    Im going to a startup in jan and the owner wanted me to get the tech all setup on a 57in x 17in bench from crate.

    Below are the results - took me 2 tries because I wanted it to look as clean as possible.

    The only thing left is for the flat mounted monitor to be installed & plugged in. Theres just enough room on the power strip for it. Everything is wired into our network and the epson doubles as a scanner and fax.

    UPDATE:

    Heres the end result

    Ugh B’s right. I guess that can still be done eventually. After freaking out on the idiots at bestbuy NoHo for not showing up with the tv, we were at our wits ends and didnt think of the 3/8th idea.

    you can run the wires through the wall, or you can do it the official way and put rca or hdmi end termination boxes in, and run the cable from box to box, and then from the device to the box, and the box to the set
    but that gets costly

    but then if you ever move the equipment you're left with professional looking boxes.
    of course a hole can just be spackled over or covered with a standard blank plate

    There’s no cable in the office. Just a mac mini and that television with a wireless kb.

    Its badass.

    thats nothing, i need to get some pics of my computer desk. all of the wires are hidden and strapped up on the underside of the desk. and its A LOT of wires. 2 computers, 3 monitors, speakers, wired KB/M, router, modem, external HDD. i was quite proud but it took me forever to route the wires nicely lol.

    looks good though.

    ^ The kicker is we probably could have paid the installer from best buy to do it while he was drilling holed for the mounting bracket >.>.
