Q: I've had this lovely gem for two years now and am finally going to do a twofer lightening job with paint and casters. I got these 600 lbs weight limit casters that are pretty hefty and look to be an inch taller than the height of the base board on the dresser (that's the word yes?). My skills lie more in internet searching than carpentry yet I can't find much information about knocking out the base board, if it's a good idea or not, to replace with the casters. So I guess I'm wondering what AT and the community think. Thanks!
