Just a note

If you cut out the area shaded yellow, and suspended it where the red arrow is pointing, you should find it hangs with its x-axis horizontal and its y-axis vertical - provided it was sufficiently stiff, and had been cut accurately.

Notice that, because of the effects of leverage, the cutting has to be most accurate where it is furthest from the mean.
