Finishing plates outside

Sand bottom (and top) with Mouse to get as smooth as possible. Sand again with wood block and sandpaper (~1 x 1 x 4 cm) to remove high spots. Fill in holes and gouges with wood filler.

Adjust edge thickness all around perimeter:
4 mm all around except
4.5 mm in "C" bouts
5 mm at corners.

Mark back of both top and bottom 6 - 7 mm from edge all around perimeters.

On both top and bottom:
mark end block locations (width = block, height = 17 mm)
mark centre line
on bottom mark 196 mm from each end
take centre of these marks
mark centre point 3 - 4 mm to right of centre line at middle. This is the centre point of the back.

From centre point, mark arcs to divide both ends into 3.
Inner circle is 6 mm, next is 5 mm, then 4 mm, then 3 mm.
