This may look like one of the many murphy beds that I build but it is not. It is a standard baseball bed with a wall unit. I took the headboard of the baseball bed and surrounded it with a couple bookcases and light bridge. It was completed in February 2011.

The bookcases are built just like the ones I use on the murphy bed with the full length door and a couple drawers at the bottom. If you ever wonder why the drawers of this style bookcase never start at the bottom, it has a cubby hole. It’s there so there is not interference with the lower hinge and drawers. I think it give a nice little effect. You need somewhere slightly out-of-site to store them dirty cleats.

It is built mainly from maple with some MDF. The finish is pigmented lacquers.

The lights are controlled by a touch dimmer at the top of the headboard.

Here are some of the true Murphy bed styles: Yankee's Special Edition, Vintage Style
