I have not installed this yet, so this review is only for those wondering about the quality and construction. A quite note about delivery: Having this shipped to my home was not an option for me. It had to be delivered to a local store, and then I had to come pick it up. What I was not told was HOW it had to be shipped. When the store brought it out to my truck, it was standing upright on a pallet, fully supported on both sides by 2x4s. There were big warnings on box: "Delivery: If this box is not delivered standing up, you will be fined!" and there were tipping indicators on the sides (Basically green sand that would spill into a non-removable portion of the indicator proving whether or not the box remained vertical." Trying to get a 6-tall box in the back of my truck and then home without it falling over, was nigh on impossible. I'm also a pretty strong guy, and I'm guessing trying to get this off your truck and in your home to finish and install is nigh on impossible as well. At some point, you have to unpack and carry the pieces horizontally. So, NOTE TO MANUFACTURER: Come up with a way to ship this that allows homeowners to manage it better that the current process. OK, so I have it in my house now and I ordered "Oak" unfinished. I'm attaching pictures below to show how it looks. I've stained it with a "Dark Walnut" Minwax finish and I have so far put two coats of water-based poly. I normally use oil-based, but my shop isn't well ventilated and it's too hot to keep the doors open, so I used the water-based because the fumes are a lot less. As far as construction goes, this unit seems pretty well built. All of the front-facing parts appear to be solid wood (Oak in my case). The parts that are not, are the back and sides of the cabinet, which are either particle board with Oak veneer, or plywood with Oak veneer. I haven't started installation yet, but NOTE: The only instructions come via an app you have to download to your phone. One issue I've noted with this lack of installation instruction, is when it comes to finishing/painting. Since you don't know precisely what goes where, it's unclear whether you'll only need to finish one side of the boards that came with it. I assume they are all trim parts, so I've picked the best-looking side and finished those. But, printed instructions would be helpful. I'll try and update this review when I've installed the unit.

Response from Murphy Door ProAug 19, 2020
Thank you for this detailed review. These types of reviews are so helpful for us as a business in bettering our products and making positive changes for our customers. For the note you left us on shipping this product to make it easier to manage, we have tried many different ways of shipping the doors and this has been the way that we have had the least amount of damage to the doors. The doors can be removed from the pallet once delivery is made. We put all the stickers and Tip and Tell on the boxes solely for the delivery drivers. We find that anytime the doors are pulled off the pallets, we end up with damage. But because of this review we are adding to the packaging a Customer Checklist that gives details on how to handle the freight once it is delivered. We apologize for the inconvenience on this door delivery. But we are grateful for the quality review that you have provided us, so that we can make these positive changes for our customer. If you have any additional suggestions for us, we would love to hear them. Please reach out to us at cs@murphydoor.com
Thank you again. MurphyDoor

    It was very easy to install if you have ever hung a door not much different than any other door. I bought the unfinished model and stained and sealed it myself it required very little sanding and the finish came out great. Yes I would recommend this product.

    SO, SO PLEASED!
    We ordered the French Murphy doors to replace paint-grade louvered doors on an entry way coat closet. They were the perfect solution to replace and upgrade our cheap ugly doors in an important space in our house. The doors are solid, beautifully crafted and well engineered. WE LOVE THEM! And so do all our friends and visitors. We now have beautiful solid wood bookcases, where previously we had ugly folding doors AND we got to keep our coat closet. If you have an opportunity for these doors, get them! It'd be good if you have hung a few doors before, but the directions are CLEAR, LOGICAL AND THOROUGH, so if you have a level, a tape measure and a cordless drill, you can install these doors without being a carpenter. You will need some way of preparing and mounting the door trim to match your room's--preferably a chop/mitre saw. We did add a piece of base trim to the threshold they provide, which made the doors look even better. If you pay attention, your result will look PROFESSIONAL. My wife and I were both eager to write this review, as we want to support this wonderful product. We are SO, SO PLEASE with our result. P.S. The doors do swing easily when the shelves are loaded, though we haven't packed them entirely with heavy books.

      Off square. Doors do not line up or meet. Had to fabricate trim to fill in the 2 inch gap between door. Had to re-engineer latching. Directions for install “seem” straight foreword, but it took some door/cabinetry know-how to install and adjust. Operation took a fair number of modifications.

      I bought two of these swing out Murphy Doors as pictured. They came in great shape. Assembly was smooth. I finished them myself but the oak wood was smoothly sanded and ready for stain. They look great in my library looking collection room and nicely hide furnace, water heater, closet space.

      It is very sturdy. Hinges are high quality. It looks very nice. One of the 2 doors isn't flush in the frame. A out 1/8 in back. The other door is warped a bit. If it wasn't for these two issues it would be 5 stars for sure.

      Extremely easy to install. Love the stain. The only thing is once its installed you really can't take the door off unless you disassemble the door frame. To move large furniture in and out of the room. Everybody that has seen it loves and couldn't believe it was a door, that really is the best part to us.
