This is a murphy wall bed that I call the Smithsonian. The first one I built like this was for the Smiths, hence the SMITHsonian name. This is one that I make the desk disappear into the face of the murphy bed. I actually modify the Create-a-bed building instructions for the inner frame to house the folded desk and Modify the face as well.
The first one took a while to make sure the desk was level. There are a lot a variables that effected other parts and measurements.
This one was built in Maple and was finished out by the customer. It was finished in March 2015. Another variation that I did on this one was to use the Deluxe leg from Create-a-bed. This elimiated the normal leg blocks I normally put on that fluted edge. See old Smithsonian Murphy Bed.
