Hi, I’m Jon on behalf of Expert Village. In
this video clip, we’ll be laying out our holes for the grommets. Now since we are running
electrical wires off the inside of the leg, we need an area on top of the desk for the
electrical wires to come out. This is what our final product will hopefully look like.
We will be able to remove this cap, run all of our electrical wires down here and put
that cap back on. That is going to look real nice. The first thing we need to do is measure
the over hang on each side of our leg. There is a 1″ over hang on each side. Now since
there is a 1″ over hang and we know that our legs are 3/4″ thick, we are going to add together
and get 1 3/4″. Next I measured in 1 3/4″ and real lightly place a pencil line. This
is going to signify the inside side of the leg. We are going to do the same going the
other way. The next thing we need to do is position our grommet in place. I’m just going
to place that so there is a little bit of a gap between the inside of each leg. Then
just draw around it. Now since our grommet is 2 1/2″ wide, I’m going to measure for the
center of my circle. By marking the circle, it will make it a lot easier when we drill
our hole for my grommet.

    I made it by myself thanks to woodprix plans. I think it's the best way to learn how to build.
