Turned out great! You mentioned the improvement noise-wise. How much of a noise reduction would you say putting it in the cabinet has been? If it’s significant, I’ll have to do something similar with mine - I’ve just been using mine on top of a side table, but the noise of it is pretty disturbing I find.
I'd say it takes it down a few db and rolls off a lot of the high frequencies, so the shuffling sounds "duller" if that makes sense. Having it below the level of the table in the side cart should help too. I made a video to show the difference between having the cabinet door open and closed, which is semi representative of how much dampening there is right now.

I experimented with noise dampening materials with my Shuffletech. I opened up one of my Shuffletechs and applied dynamat to the interior surface of the casing. It helped a bit.

Most of the sound comes thru the top of the unit. I applied dynamat to the underside of the top door and that helped the most, but it was a bit ugly.

Easiest and most effective is just to lay a mousepad on top of the machine as it runs if the noise bugs you too much. That will eliminate alot of the noise.

For me, once you're playing, and there's a tv or music in the background and people are socializing and having conversations, the noise of the shuffler fades away as minor background noise.

That makes sense. I was resisting the idea of insulating the top door so I wouldn't miss seeing a jam if one occurred. But I suppose I would hear it anyway, haha. Did you have your shuffler in a cabinet as well or do you use it free standing?

I actually mounted into my table.

So I think having yours in a cabinet lower than the table surface will help alot with the noise as well.
