Tried following the tutorial carefully several times, but each time after beveling the outer edges and optimizing, I get weird intersecting polygons at some of the corners, like this: STwEMYY.jpg

What's weird is that they go away if I turn the symmetry off, but changing any of the settings on it don't help. Attached the file if anyone wants to look at it, right before the optimize.

Those are "N-Gon" edges. Just go to the viewport filter menu and uncheck "N-Gon Lines". The lines will now be hidden.

Hope this helps.
