Advice on cutting Burlwood Trim

I know this might be a stretch but hopefully some artisan is monitoring. I bought the trim pieces shown in the attached photo from eris designs of Germany. The two pieces for either side of the steering wheel on my 1994 E500 mounted without any modification.

The two pieces for the passenger side of the dash are made for a vehicle with a glove compartment. My vehicle has an SRS airbag assy. in place of the glove box. The pieces are the correct length but are not the correct height. I will have to "cut" an inch or so off the hieght of each piece. The pieces are burlwood on the face and what appears to be aluminium backing.

Does anyone know what method to employ in cutting the pieces without damaging the burlwood?
