I finally got around to making the bookcase for next to the Murphy Bed. I have been Ocean Fishing most the summer. Mission stlye with a semi-hidden pull out table. Made from Oak to match the bed. Adjustable shelfs and soft close door. Softens the look of the bed on the wall alone So far all our guest’s love the bed. A few of my friends have gotten them after seeing and trying it out. I have 3 order’s to make bookshelfs now ugh.

Nice work Ken. This type of bed can be real handy to have in the right place. An American friend of mine who owned a company that manufactured Kelly beds came to visit us in here in Norway and he offered to bring some bed mechanisms with him so I could build one too, but I couldn’t figure out a place to put one in our home so I had to turn down his offer.
