Trefoil layout

I enjoyed your trefoil carving video. There are so many possibilities! I have a question about setting out the triangle in the beginning. You appear to set the base line at a "random" position. Is there a geometric or mathematical decision in where to place that initial base line or is this something that is done by what looks right?
