Cutting pre-fab shelf board in store


I wanted to purchase a board like this (below) and have it cut down to add some additional shelves to one of my kitchen pantry cabinets. If I buy the board in store will shop cut this to dimensions I need?

Hi jle,

We only make rough cuts to allow our customers to get the material into their vehicle for transport home. Our radial arm saws use a rip blade, this blade would leave a very unattractive rough edge on your shelf. We do not cut to specific dimensions.

As Mike said, you don't want the store to cut your shelving because the saws aren't set up for that kind of work.  Find yourself a cabinet shop that has the necessary equipment to do the job properly.

It's possible to made the cut using an ordinary circular saw and a fine tooth blade but it's a bit tricky (and potentially dangerous) if you haven't used a circular saw before.
