The was a large project that I completed in January 2010. It is based on my Bullock style Murphy bed. This one has two twin versions of that separated by a bookcase. Connected on the left side is a desk with wall mounted uppers.

The counter tops for the desk was selected by the customer. It was Sedona Bluff from Wilsonart (see sample nice pattern and texture. I used a matching oak on the front edges. We had some left over so I used it on a pullout tray on the bookcases.

What was really cool on this project was the customers involvement. This customer tuned in to my live video stream daily to watch the progress. Because of this I was able to get his input at different stages of the building process.

The building pictures and recorded videos were too numerous to post here so made a page for them.

great looking project, guessing it took a great deal of time to put all this together…
