I have a bit of a problem. I need to replace my 20 year old refrigerator with a larger, newer model which is 68inches tall (68.5 inches at the front door hinge). Unfortunately, the cabinets over the old refrigerator measures 67 and 3/4 inches!
The part of the cabinet which is too low is the solid front face piece. This is solid oak and is 3/4 inches thick and runs 39 inches long.
To get the newer, larger fridge to fit (I have not bought it yet) I would need to neatly, and precisely, remove stock by about 1/2 an inch for clearance.
I have an idea; I have a rotary cutter....I was going to remove the cabinent doors, then using some wood vice grips, position a 1 by 2 by 39inch piece of stock, then using this as a 1/2 inch depth guide use the rotory zip to remove 1/2 inch of the cabinent to make clearance.
Would this seem to be the "best" way to make a smooth, straight cut?
Any ideas would help!!!
