This is a Murphy bed that I finished in April 2016. It was built from Red Oak with mission type of face. I call the face “The Templeton” More versions of the Templeton Murphy Bed.

Some of the older version had blocks on the face to be used as leg. I’ve changed the deign and now use a leg the folds around from the inside of the bed.

The bookcases are 24” wide and have large door covering the top section. I made the door to match the style of the murphy bed. The lower section has pull out drink trays and 2 drawers.

For more building pictures see my Current Projects page or I have 6000+ pictures divided by month in my Picture Archives.

Nice looking project, thanks for posting.

I’ve never seen one of these in person, but it looks like an interesting idea.

Chris, this bed turned out beautifully. You did a really nice job on it.
