Working on a semi-technical add-on for my workstation console. Building a "card cage" for 3 plywood "cards", each of which is custom-designed to hold a part of the rig's cable plant... power supply for the monitor, USB hub, strain relief+egress.

The cards will slide in and out of the cage like removable disks. Decide on different gear down the road... just swap out the component mounts.

What your machine setup for something like this? I'd love to get into cnc woodworking.

@Clifford My setup is a pretty standard Shapeoko 3 XL. I designed my own fixtures, work holding, enclosure and such... but otherwise it's pretty stock.

I'll post some pictures of my setup this week...

@M4x @FreeCAD "cable management backplane"?

Trying out approaches that treat the furniture as part of the workstation.

I also kind of like building highly technical parts in plywood. I'll probably add aluminum into my repertoire once I have a shop.
