with panel groove opened so that you can insert glass. Make usual panel and use a rabbeting bit to open the groove. For the top, you can just make a solid wood piece to fit the top and then add a 1/4 piece the size of the opening to lock in the top.

The thought was a usual panel but use a rabbeting bit to open the groove where the glass/lexan would go. Sorry if this was not clear in first post. You’ll need to make the groove if you use the traditional method to make a T&G rail & stile frame for a panel. Once glued, you would use the rabetting bit to open the grove to make it a dado for the glass/lexan. As for any concerns of opening. I STILL think a lift off top is the easiest design for bulb change etc, and unless you have a way to set a microwave dish to direct power into the cabinet, yes you will need to drill or form some sort of hole for the power cable…. (the next sentence of my thoughts has been deleted for the sake or forum harmony).
