We have an old farmhouse and are getting ready to redo the kitchen. I plan on keeping the exsisting cupboards but are moving them from one wall to another. They are all one piece and I will need to split them. Is there an easy way to accomplish this without ruining them?

It really depends on how they are made and your cabinetry skills. You can always cut the cabinets - turning one large cabinet into two but you'll be rebuilding two ends to make this happen. Aside from the challenge of finding the same materials a project like this will require a fair amount of fine carpentry skills.
You can always hire it out to a pro, but in this case the cost to modify the cabinets will likely equal or exceed that of new cabinetry.

One cut end would butt up against a wall so we would not have to finish that side. We have accomplished the living room, bathroom, and a back enclosed porch remodel and a laundry room complete new construction without having to hire a pro, if we can't figure this one out without having to hire someone to do it there is a problem. My brother-in-law actually does wood working maybe he has some ideas.

Well, there you go - half the work is already done.
If you or somebody you know has the skill, then as I said - the hard part is finding the same material.

I think it is pine but who knows.
