  • 12/2 around corner framing

    Im running a new circuit for my garage and ran into the problem of running wire around a corner. For various reasons, I cant go through the top plate and into the rafters, so im stuck figuring this out.

    in the corner, there are two sandwiched 2x4s on the x axis, and one 2x4 on the y-axis butted together, so imagine a 6x6 corner post. I guess I could run a 3/4 bit through each end and create a tunnel and try to fish it around a 90' bend, but I was also thinking about making a 1/2" notch on two sides and covering with nailing plates.

    I have to imagine there is a better way...what would you do?

    Thats how it is done. Create a tunnel and fish it through. Just try to stay in the center of the stud.

    good luck

      like huckster4 said drill in the centers of the 2x4s, as best you can, and if you have a fishing hook remover(in your tacklebox) grab it, they come in handy for those who do electrical work.... little trade secret..
