This version of my Ross Murphy bed, completed on September 23, 2009, has a few changes from my normal version. The first off you notice the doors. A display area was left at the top and not coved with a door. The customer also requested that I double the thickness of the Murphy verticals and put a forty-five degree chamfer on the outside edge. I did the same with the bookcases.

Very nice Murphy bed Chris. I particularly like the open display area at the top and the pullout shelves. Good job.

I built a Murphy bed for our guest room a few years ago. I’ll post pictures when I get a chance.
