Securing a floor cabinet

Posted by bellaterra (My Page) on

I am having to replace a drop-in range with a free-standing one. There is a 12 inch cabinet with 3 drawers to the right of the range. If I cut the wood (and countertop backsplash) out to be able to slide a range in, what would be the best way to secure the cabinet so that it doesn't start wobbling?

I'm sure it's secured to the wall, and it will still be under the existing counter top, but I'm thinking it needs something else to keep it from coming loose. Any ideas?

The wall fastening should be more than adequate.
