First, I would like to commend the search function for this forum. Put anything into the search box and it comes up with the same irrelevent threads. Works well.

So I'll ask here. Every once and a while somebody asks about the restrictions on drilling and cutting holes in manufactured lumber. Links to manufacturers websites were given and that's what I'm looking for. This question came up in another board and I would like to provide this information.

Anybody remember?

Hal,

Try a search for 'Glulam' here in the general area.

Here's one from the Building Code area:
