I grabbed the mill from out the cupboard and started making some sloths on the bottomside (for the cables from the subs)

Then I started making frames where the glass will rest on. This alu plate is about 3mm thick.
Then I sanded it down, and drew it out.

Then I cut away as much as possible with the jigsaw. Because it's impossible to saw straight with a jigsaw, I milled the last mm.
Pretty easy to do.

It's superimportant that the aluminium is taped to the table. I did it with dubbel sided tape.
You can also see that the plate is laying against some nails. I knock them qual to the top of the plate, so the mill doesn't flip when I go over them.

And a lath which functions as a glider for the mill.

This looks pretty smooth and easy, but when you look at the clock, hours pass by. But I don't care about the time.
