    Physical protection behind crown molding

    Running romex where the wall and ceiling meets. Going to be hidden by crown moulding.. 300.4 only mentions notches in wood or boring through studs.... would I need to use a different raceway behind the crown molding?
    .....Still just happy to be here.....

    (F) Cables and Raceways Installed in Shallow Grooves.

    You need 1&1/4 free space or some type of protection for the cable

      I see no NEC wording that would prohibit this without cable protection.
