We purchased honey maple doors for John Louis custom closet furniture. The packaging protected the parts very well; everything arrived in excellent condition. The engineering on the doors was generally good, but there are some issues. I would have preferred to have had the holes pre-drilled as there was some room for error in installing the hinges onto the doors. When attaching the doors to the tower frame, although there is only one position where the doors will fit, again, there is some room for error that could have been eliminated with pre-drilled, or even pre-marked drill-holes. Finally, the adjustments on the hinges are very difficult to use. All told, while we found all the other parts from John Louis (towers, shelves, drawers, etc. to be very well engineered and easy to assemble, the doors were significantly more challenging.
The color of the large 8" &10" drawers matched each other and the closet, but not the 6" drawers. The three 6" drawers did match each other and the door set. I am reviewing the doors/drawers as a set, even though they are listed here separately. The price at Overstock is great and the shipping of $2.95 is amazing. The JHL closet system is good quality overall, solid wood, and versatile to fit differing closets (our third). There are a few knots in my set. My only issue is the color difference on the front view (due to dye lots of stain?). I didn't seek a correction (yet).
I added these doors after the complete closet was installed, it makes such a beautiful addition and completes the closet in a rich and classy way. Very high quality and heavy duty hinges included with these doors. Really impressed with the quality of all the John Louis Closet accessories and components.
cannot say enough about the quality and functionality of this system and looks like a million bucks

We filled a walk in closet with two deluxe kits, one on each side, and a tower at the end. We ended up putting 3 glass door sets. The closet looks and works great. We had taken out white wire, and this is an enormous improvement. It took longer to put together than we anticipated, but still went together well. We added quite a few drawers also. The end product is outstanding.

The glass doors looks elegant on the tower. View the instructions video carefully in the John louis website. Leveling the door was difficult, but figured it out after struggling for a bit. There are screws provided to adjust leveling, so reviewing the video in detail helps a lot.
My walk-in closet is John Louis and I designed the layout. My closet looks great and I'm very happy with this product. My closet contains 1 of the Tower Door kit, although more can be added based on designed. After 5 yrs., only issue is that one door drags a little and probably needs tightening.
Received these doors in red mahogany for my new closet installation. They are high quality and look very nice. The glass is clear and fluted so they won't hide much behind them. But, they make the tower look finished and dressy. They were packaged extremely well, as were all of the John Louis pieces I received. A definite must have for the tower.
