After picking the three plates and being sure that they fit together well, they can be drilled. For this you should measure the plate exactly and draw the middle on the crossed adhesive strip. A cross of adhesive tape distributes tension during drilling and protects against cracks. It is also better to place under the plate a double or multiple folded cloth, which ensures distribution of vibration during drilling. Before drilling, the drill should be set to the slowest level. First drill slightly diagonally and then hold straight without great pressure and continue to drill. Here, a lot of patience is claimed but then come pleasing good results.
