I'm in California.

I have a 4x4 structural post jack stud and a corresponding king stud 2x4.

I would like to bore a 1/2" hole as close to the top as possible through both the jack and king.

I know that code calls for a minimum 5/8" from the edge, but I think that refers to the side, not the top.
