This is a Murphy bed that was completed in September 2010 but some of the buildng pictures can be found in August . I call it the Smithsonian because “Smith” was the name of the customer I first designed this one for. Normally this one has a desk that folds out of the desk but this customer didn’t choose to have that option. Also they changed up the drawers onthe bottom to an all door look.
The order was originally for one bookcase. They added the second one after I was finished with it.
This one also has inset bookcases. I normally use them when the customer need the sofa and bookcases on the side. The space for the inset bookcases allow the arms to be in a dead area so that both the bed and drawers work. This one didn’t actually need them for that reason but was a nice addition.
This is the first of two beds I built for this customer. I just finished up the second one and working on a LARGE interior pocket door. This door will be 96”h x 48”w x 1 5/16” Thick. I’ll post the other projects when my posting catches up.
