This is a Murphy Wall bed completed on 10-01-2007, built using the mission/shaker style. I called it Mission because I normally build this one using oak wood. This particular customer chose to use maple. It looks more shaker to me with the real clean lines and flat panels. They also selected their own hardware and shipped it to us.
Since the doors are non-working, the gap can’t be adjusted using the hinges. To make this piece look as natural as possible, I fit the doors tight and then removed them and cut a small groove around them. This made it appear that there was a perfect gap.
Another feature on this bed is the hidden bookcases. The shelving area is accessed from inside the cabinet, so when the bed is closed nothing is seen. This is the second time I’ve built a hidden bookcase style. The other was the Quarter Sawn Murphy bed.
