Draw a line vertically a horizontally so that the lines meet exactly on the centre. One center meter (0.4 inch) down each end of each line make a mark and then draw a line from the mark to the corner for each one. And drill 5mm (or near enough) holes where the arrows are pointing on the picture (make sure you get rid of the burs).
