Well, there's nothing very complicated about drilling holes. Put one
where it belongs. You'll probably have to buy a large-diameter drill
bit for the purpose, so don't forget to put it on your expense report!
If anyone asks, tell them that you can't make the desk any more nonstandard,
since it was already custom-built for you.

(Also, there's no such thing as a big fancy 17" monitor. 17" monitors
are toys.)
