Mitch and Liana dropped off the potted base this morning. Now the long, detailed CNC work can begin. But first I sanded the perimeter clean and glued on sacrificial hold-down blocks. Once the glue is fully set I’ll drill hold-down holes. The bottom is fairly level but I will still run a flattening pass. The top is less flat, so I shimmed the gaps all around. The order of operations will be flatten and machine the bottom cavities first. This shouldn’t take more than a few hours of machine time and is not dimension sensitive for the most part.
