What to cut first

I received the last of the needed steel today.  Only metal left to is some brass that will be cut to holders for the springs.  I also need to purchase the wood deck material.   I got lots of choices in what to cut.  I cut the pedestal spacer, need to drill and tap the mounting holes for the pedestals. I also cut the brass glides for the journals.  And the center part of the journals, that is when I confirmed a fear I had last night, I did not account for clearance so the journal can slide up and down.  I will have to trim the pedestals so the brass is out a little so the journals can slide.  Note to self, update the drawing so there is clearance.
