This is a murphy bed I completed last May, just in time for guests. I bought the hardware kit from Rockler and followed the plans fairly closely. I only adjusted the depth of the bed to accommodate a pillow top mattress. Construction is cherry plywood, stained, and finished with wipe-on polyurethane. You might notice the lighter wood under the latch/leg. In just a few months the exposed wood is darkening even though this room gets very little direct sunlight.
We’ve had friends and relatives stay with us a few times since I completed the bed and it’s worked great. This room is also our workout room and it only takes a few minutes to get it ready for guests.
