How do you guys run the wires to a recessed outlet in the cab? Wires must be physically protected. What kind of wire do you run RX or BX. What method do you use to run or protect the wire going through the subfloor?
When feeding Small appliances like dish washers, wine coolers, & etc. do you run RX and protect the wire using pvc conduit sleeve?
I had a customer that wanted an incandescent above the sink. I used a Carlon blue plastic 4/0 cut in box, drilled a 7/8 hole in it and sleeved the romex with a piece of smurf fastened to the box with a smurf connector. I know drilling the box was probably voiding the listing, but he inspector didnt have a problem with it.

I usually use a pvc sleeve. Based on what I have seen I think we are in the minority. Most guys seem to just run the romex through the cabinet. Big B, I have no idea what you are describing. Why didn't you just fish in a peice of romex?

Thanks for the replys, I always like to get ideas of how other workers in my trade like to do things. I usually try to put a piece of PVC in through the floor then just use Romex but now people are steering my to box over to bx once I get in the cabinets.

Scott, the romex was already there, hanging out of the wall, this was a remodel. I just used the blue flexible NMC to an old work box so there was no exposed romex in the cabinet. With MC I'd need a j box for the transition then how would I commect the MC to a 4.0 old work box, they are all plastic.
