For those who are interested in wood-bending-techniques and alternative cable outlets made out of solid wood, I recently completed a Shaper Origin supported project. The base could also be used as a base frame for a piece of furniture and is conceivable in any other type of wood. Instead of the plastic version, I tried to design a simple outlet made of wood, which definitely enhances your office table optically.
