Response to Height above the barrel and also eye relief is a challenge
that's exactly what I thought I'd do: leave the bushings in the wood and cut the top of the forearm section off. That way you still have something to hold onto. The trick (not being a machinist and only having a drill press) is getting the top holes drilled perfectly in line so that the scope rail is parallel with the barrel. Thanks for the other info. I was also thinking of somehow adding a thin curved piece of wood over the rear receiver section as a cheek rest for the low mounted scope. If you lower the adjustable buttpad all the way it helps to line up with a lower scope.
