How do I find someone who can take 1/2 inch off

I was able to find some great pine bookcases with crown molding on Craig's List (have been looking for years). I love them but couldn't figure out what wasn't working and then realized that the front of each shelf measures 1 1/2" and I think they would look much better at about 1". I grew up with lots of bookcases, have looked at lots of pictures, and I've decided this is what I want--how do I go about finding someone who could take that 1/2" off and sand the cut ends of 8 shelves that are about 2 feet long. Grateful thanks for any guidance.

RE: How do I find someone who can take 1/2 inch off

This is a job for a table saw. If you have a woodworking store around your area (independent, Rockler, or Woodcraft), they can probably lead you to a craftsman, furniture repair shop, furniture maker, or cabinet shop who could do this for you.

The major problem might be matching the finish from the original to freshly cut wood.
