What is the color of the cabinet? Love it! - What type of finish is that? Glaze, etc? Thanks!

Thank you for your inquiry and apologies for the delayed response. This project was completed quite a few years ago and that information is not readily available. We had a custom cabinet shop when this project was being completed and most likely they customized this piece and then had them finished. Sorry we couldn't be of more help!

Noticing the large scratch in the floor, is this a common problem? - I have seen this many times. Even on tv shows where the hidden door is given away as there are obvious marks in floor. Is this from being unbalanced or constant use? If this is truly a secret door than would be a concern. If it is just for show and used constantly should I expect such wear ? There are a couple of these doors at our office that basically hide bathrooms in executive offices. They both have the same type of wear. The office building is a heritage building so is quite old. Love the idea, but am concerned about the damage it could cause. Thank you

I have to think this would be easy to avoid with the use of felt or teflon, not to mention there are many materials more forgiving than wood.

Where can I buy hardware for the swinging bookcase?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

We ended up custom making/altering the hardware for this bookcase door in our cabinet shop.

If you send me your email address I can see if our owner and cabinet shop manager could give you more specifics on what they did to make this work.

Thanks for your interest.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Finally, there is another fun surprise for the adults; this bookcase off the main entry swings open to a secret staircase that serves as the only access to a secret library upstairs.
