Those legs on the cabinet do not look to me that they will be strong enough to support the weight of the 'door top' plus the added weight of dishes etc. on the table. Something else to consider is the ratio of the size of the cabinet surface to the size of the door. If there is going to be any overhang the base will probably have to be reinforced in preparation for the weight of leaning on the overhanging portions.
On the cabinet, how are you going to remove the portion of the back that is higher than the front, to make the surface flat?
I built the frame and legs out of 1x3x8 rounded edge furring strips, cost around 40$. I filled the low spots in the door with closet cedar, cost around 30$. Painted door red and used two gallons of epoxy to cover the table to make it smooth and shine, cost 150$. I also torched the legs and polyurethane them to shine. It's easy to do just tan the wood don't burn it. Practice on a piece first. Pine and spruce work best.
