This week’s Workspace of the Week is Tomek’s cable containment solution:
Good cable management is hard to master, but Tomek has done an impressive job with his home office. He has attached a pegboard to the back of his desk with nails, and then has plastic pegboard locks keeping the cables in place. It looks like you also could easily do inexpensive zip ties, if you set the ties in place before mounting it to the back of the desk. The two dangling plugs are ones that go into the wall, so those wouldn’t be seen when they’re plugged in and the desk is in its normal location in the room. Thank you for the inspiration, Tomek, and the reminder that pegboard can be a wonderful organizing tool.

Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.
