I have wanted a murphy bed for the guest room for a long time. I have looked at all the posts from Chris Davis and his company WWW.wwbeds for a while on here. The biggest debate was how much to do myself. If you buy the hardware kit from him he offers to send to the plans for free.
Blondie I had a tough beginning of the year, losing Mom unexpectedly. Keeping Dad busy, who for 50 yrs has never been on his own is a big adjustment. He mentioned he wanted to come out for a visit while talking; I was like heck yes come now!
Being the guest room had a futon and we all know how those feel, maybe good for one night. I knew I needed a proper bed for his visit. I choose to buy the unfinished precut Mission Kit from Chris. Saves me time be having them do all cutting and drilling. Not to mention some money by me doing the finishing and assembly. We worked out a price, which I thought was really fair. I even bought a mattress from his company. This to be shipped along with the bed at a great price compared to our Southern California prices.
We cpl minor things that were missed in the shipping due to change over to a upgraded Mechanism kit. It was always handled quickly and without an issue. I am very impressed with Create a Bed hardware and Chris’s Bed Company.
I stained it then sprayed 5 coats of Enduo-Var with my Earlex-5500. Most of you know I’m a big fan of Craftsman and Mission style.
I’m currently making the Bookcase for next to it and about 1/2 way done.
I am Extremely Happy with this Bed. Pops say he slept great on it for 2 weeks. Although that might be from me working him in the shop with me as much as possible LOL
Sorry about the pics, I’ll get better soon I hope.
Thx, all comments are welcome
