Cut a hole into the desk for the jack and volume control and cover with a blank electrical wall plate from Home Depot. Choose a plate color to best match the desk. Mount the jack and volume control on the wall plate. A plate already drilled for two F connectors (also available) may work if you simply enlarge the holes as needed.

Small metal project box (ABS could also work and would be completely insulated, but might be more subject to breakage if hit by a knee or chair arm, etc…) from Bud or Hammond, relevant jack(s) and 10k log pot(s), drill press and drill bit(s) matching the required bulkhead penetration sizes of the jack(s) and pot(s) (available on the datasheets).
Once assembled and wired, with the cover off, screw upward into the underside of the furniture, install cover and you’re good to go.

Subject: [CRTech] Headphone Jack Mount
I'm looking for a small box or "L" shaped bracket to mount to studio furniture. The box or "L" bracket has to have the stereo female jack already mounted and come with a volume control. I have a small amplifier to drive the two headsets that will be used in the studio. It does not have to be powered, but it could be it the price is right.
I went to a dealer's website and they want big money for something like that.
I want something that looks professional without a professional price.
Thanks for your thoughts.
