    Yes. I've done it a number of times, however it is a lot easier with a plunge saw and guide rails (working from the top face) rather than using a standard circular saw and working from the underside (don't use a jigsaw as the blade tends to wander in deep cuts). Often the worktop will begoin beneath a tiled backsplash or upstand of some sort meaning that accuracy doesn't need to be that great as the edge will ultimately be hidden

    If doing a mason's mitre joint on the shortened end remember to take that into account when cutting the joint
