We are replacing preformed cabinet tops in kitchen and found the tops have a bow in them. We have a seam where one piece was cut & we have routed underneath and bolted together. The seam looks good. However, the bow falls where there is no bracing in cabinet to fasten the top down. The pieces are all cut and laid out but not fastened down. They seem to fit good & have no pressure at any point. Is there a suggestion
to help take the bow down at this seam area?

I have no experience in doing any of my furniture DIY, as I always engage a contractor to help out, but I heard from him that you could search for videos online with detailed instructions, so why not give it a shot?

Here is a solution for fastening down a countertop where there are no cabinet braces.
Cut several strips out of 2x4 approximately 6" long and 1"x1" wide.
Pre drill a hole in about 1" from each end and countersink.
Apply wood glue, clamp to cabinet frame in the desired area and attach to cabinet frame using 1 1/4 screws.
Predrill through block to attach screws into the countertop.
