Scott, you are correct NEVER CUT ACROSS THE SEAM OF THE CABINET! The biggest reason to move the control box for this type of outfeed table is so that the box can fit between the mounting rails of the table. NOTE: if you plan to do this, remove the control box. Next drill all the holes/slots for the outfeed table & loosely attach the rails then mark the holes you need to drill for your control & motor cables. On my older style outfeed table you also have to make sure you have room for adjusting the rails up & down so make sure you take this into account before you drill the holes for the control box. You could also drill/cut slots for attaching your control box so this could also be adjusted up & down slightly. This way everything will fit the first time you assemble everything.

For the 6” dust exaust hole I used a Compass to draw the circle size needed. I then drilled a 1/2” hole close to the line and used a Jigsaw with a metal blade to cut it out. Lastly I file off the sharp edges.
