    Lol I remember the savana on display. I know a guy that actualy cut off a finger on a panel saw. That is the saws used to cut those 9 x 6 mdf boards Ivan is using for his cabinets. So this dude was in a hurry to go have a dop with his friends and did not concentrate on what he was doing and lost a finger that day. Guess what he don't drink no more at all since that day. So Ivan take OT slow on the Gummy Bear juice while working with tools that run at high rpm with sharp blades. Power routers can go up to 30 000 rpm you don't whant hour fingers near that cutter. A small tip. If you start to see three lines where you whant to cut choose the middle one and get someone else to hold the piece of wood or you just to be safe.

    Yes JP01 that Cabinet won't sag at all. With the top going over the sides there is no chance of the top tearing loose. Sides to the ground. No chance of sagging there. The front brace will prevent the top from sagging in the front and by where Ivan put in the screws to hold the front brace there is some more timber behind that brcace with will make it even stronger. With a solid 16mm back panel going inside the frame and all glued and screwed that cabinet will be able to carry a lot of weight. @ Ivan just don't go and stand on the cabinet before the back goes in. You will fall flat on your face with savana and all. After back is in and secured you can do the tabletop dance with savana if you would like.
