Getting cables through the worktop

Postby Goughy » Fri Jun 08, 2007 9:29 am

We are fitting a new worktop as part of a new kitchen and have a fridge and freezer under the worktop. The problem is that the socket for the two units is above the worktop and can't be moved. Can you suggest and ways of getting the cable through to the sockets without causing too much damage to the worktop.
