The current placement of the electrical outlet is about three inches below the countertop and three inches from the side.

Here in this photo, I guess I will have to cut the hole in the panel much lower and toward the center in order to have a flat surface for the electrical cover.

Here is how it turned out.

I drilled large pilot holes and used my jig saw to cut out the hole. I also added felt pads to the bottom of the saw to keep from scratching the surface of the cabinet.

The electrical is attached as the old box was - metal clad wire with hold-on straps to keep it from interferring with the sliding drawers.
