vertical holes in wood beams

A client recently asked me, “Can we drill a ½ in. hole vertically in a couple places to hang a ceiling fan and conceal our electrical feed?” He was referring to a 5-1/8 x 13-1/2 glulam ridge beam that, as the Project Engineer, I had specified. The question is not an uncommon one.  (Snip ... I moved this article over to Associated Content / Yahoo ... HERE.)
