Yes, there should be at least 3/4" of solid wood on the bottom, maybe more. You can take off as much as you want. If the bottom filler comes out, it just get's cleaned up and glued back in place.

If you are cutting this door with a circular saw, first scribe a line with a razor knife along where you want it cut, then run your saw blade on the waste side of the scribe to keep splintering down.
