I have a new, unassembled red 2x4 Kallax
. I want it to be 2x3. Could a lumberyard easily cut down the two long-pieces?

Having put together other 2x4 Kallaxes, I know cutting down the long-pieces would work fine in terms of *assembly* (as long as they drilled the same two screw holes into the new end-surface) -- but I'm asking here to make sure that would work in terms of *cutting*.
Would a pro be able to cleanly cut high-gloss Kallax shelves -- lightweight particle board, c. 1" thick, with a thin high-gloss outer finish?
Alternately, any other suggestions re. this plan? (I want the finish and the exact other dimensions of the 2x4, so other brands of cube shelves that are 2x3 and red won't work.)
