@DMoore GFCI outlets are used when there is water nearby, like a sink / bathtub, etc. Why would I need that on a desk?

Like I said in the question, the outlets will be mounted in such a way that liquids, etc. can't be spilled into them.

Yeah, I actually have all of the materials left over from a previous job, so the expense is for boxes, and that has been about $5 so far. :)

That's of course an option, but that doesn't really answer the question. Even if it is overkill, is it a valid way to do it?

Yeah, I've seen stuff like that, but I figured with all custom furniture, I should have all custom outlets, etc.

comment How do I attach a receptacle box to brick instead of a stud?
yes, i understand. I was just going to shove a shim in there to make it all line up right.

comment How do I attach a receptacle box to brick instead of a stud?
yes to all of those questions. But the studs are rather narrow, so the box itself is almost flush with the plaster (outer surface) when it is in the wall.

comment Can I use old abandoned iron pipe as electrical conduit?
It is black iron pipe. I would say about 1/2 inch inner diameter. The outside of the pipe is in good condition (still black, no rust). I am not so sure about the interior.

comment Do I have to staple romex to the studs behind the wall?
yeah, I've dropped a weighted string from top to bottom in several places with zero obstruction so I am pretty sure that the wall is completely empty.
