I have to cut a cabinet down in order to make it shallower. I can run a circ. saw around the perimiter, but what about the fixed shelf inside? Any suggestions for a quick job that will not splinter and chip up the shelf, while still leaving a nice straight edge to re-attach the back panel to? The cabinet (and shelf) is all oak veneer 3/4″ plywood. At this point, I’m pretty much leaning towards using the circular saw as far as i can go and finishing the cut with either a hand saw or a jigsaw with a metal blade. What do you guys think?
For your next finishing project, look no further than the Colours of London, a curated collection of 120 colors from Mylands.
