How to cut up a dresser?

Kelli L. MilliganMogie


I have a wood dresser with 3 drawers wide and 3 drawers high. I would like to make it into 2 dressers, 1 with 3 drawers high and the other one with 3 drawers high and 2 drawers wide. What is the best way to cut it?

    Why not just pry the top off and use a saw to shorten it to the height you want.

    Not super easy. Remove top and drawers, draw your cut line and use a fine tooth blade on a skill saw and cut. Will have to add sides to cut ends and new tops. Probably will need to make a new base or add feet.

      Hi, that is pretty much what I thought I would have to do, and you're right, I don't think it will be easy either. Thank you
