Plinths in traditional work were always projecting, as distinct from recessed, the term itself meaning the lowermost square-shaped projecting part of a base or column from the Greek phiallos, a brick.

For accurate work the carcass should be made and assembled first, and the carcass base used as a guide for laying out the plinth.
