The plywood base has been painted satin black using a roller. The aluminium ring which stops the bearing screw heads biting into the ply was painted and the bearing fitted. The Isonoe feet have been fitted, by design these are mounted as close to the deck as possible with only a few millimetres clearance when fully loaded. This is purely for cosmetic purposes as I didn't like the look when the plinth was raised too high off the ground.
