Cable entry in the table top

Sometimes the problem is not necessarily with the organization of the cables, but with the connection to the Mac when the table or desk is directly against the wall. You don't want to move it to the front just so that there is space for the cables behind it. Even in the office, where two desks are adjacent to each other, work should be done in a space-saving manner - and a cable bushing / cable outlet is used for the hole in the table top:
