This is the horizontal version of my Contempo Murphy bed. It was completed in August 2010. It is the first time that I’ve built this combination. The Contempo was originally a modification of my Alpine style. I just moved the score lines and moved the legs to the side.

This customer choose to get only one 24” bookcase. After they received it they want the other one too. I’ll be making that in the next couple days.

Wood Type: Maple
Stain: Cherry from Minwax
Finish: Medium sheen pre-catalyzed lacquer.
