Bookcase door


Hi guys
I'm on finishing touches to my basement development, and I'm having a few issues with a bookcase door and frame that I have made.
The frame I've made sits flush and level in the rough opening, the bookcase door is cut plumb and stand alone is perfect in every way.. Level etc.
My problem is when I hang the door, the top of the door is flush with the frame but the bottom if the door sits 2" behind the frame. I've tried adjusting and moving hinges to make it fit properly but nothing I do seems to bring the bottom into the right position.... Any ideas???

Bookcase door


the bookcase itself isnt built plumb, it has whats called a wind in it.. because of this the door wont close properly youll have to try to adjust the case itself so the door operates
