Romex holes in LVL post

Anyone have a link to details on where and how I can drill holes for Romex in new 4x4 LVL posts?

Where is this post and why do you need to drill through it? Are you asking about a tool to use or safe drill locations?

With any engineered wood product, I think it would be a good idea to contact the manufacturer for specs regarding safe drill locations and sizes for load bearing members.

That said, romex requires such a small hole (1/2" or 5/8" for one cable), that I don't think it would be a problem.
