Recessed in the wall between studs! Easy installation. Simply put construction adhesive (not included) on the back side of the frame and push it into the opening in your drywall. Fully adjustable glass shelves. Concealed hinges, doors are left undrilled for a knob or handle so you can mount them to open either direction. Solid maple doors. Ships in three sections which screw back together before installation. Proudly made in the USA. Framing in the wall around the opening is not necessary.
