You actually don't want to do that. Every grinding or milling process produces small flakes of metal, dust even, and you do not want to have that near your camera.

Just use the four holes on the rim on the tripod socket to screw it to a piece of wood.

Fair enough. It would be definitely cleaner to fasten the socket to some other substrate.
