English term or phrase: circular precedent derived from rod and fastenings

avez-vous une idée de ce que cela veut dire? Je ne parviens pas à démêler la question, et ne dispose pas d'image pour clarifier les choses.
Le contexte: l'agencement d'une librairie tout en bois. Ici, apparemment, de l'art d'adoucir les arêtes d'un rectangle de bois sur la porte d'un placard pour en faire une poignée.

"Thus, for instance to form a softened handle or grip-surface, the rectangle of the cupboard door was first twice penetrated by circular precedent derived from rod and fastenings, then by direct cuts allowing a secondary rounded hand-edge, without compromising the rectangle."

Qu'est-ce que désigne "precedent" ici? En quoi cela a-t-il un rapport avec une poignée de porte? Que sont les "rod and fastenings"? En quoi le premier est-il "derived" des seconds?

Merci d'avance.
