How to make holes through the insulation for pipes or through the bands for wooden pegs?
Linen fibres are very tough and prevent making holes with a drilling machine,
because the drill-bit will pull and wrap the strong fibres around it, “eating” the insulation material.
Instead, you need a sharp puncture-tool (piercer), or ice-pick to make a hole.
Alternatively, you can use a normal or doubled edged knife with a sharp point
and punch the hole by inserting the knife through the insulating layer in various positions.
Make the hole a little bit smaller than the wished hole-diameter for a good seal.
