It’s been so long since I posted anything…

Here’s a wall bed that my wife and I built around this time last year. We ramped it up a notch and did it in the style of an armoire to further disguise the fact that it was actually a bed.

The panels are made with Oak plywood and the cabinet style frame work is all done in solid Oak. It’s about 80″ tall and 60″ wide. The wall bed hardware is from Create-A-Bed which we bought through Lee Valley. Although the Create-A-Bed company is adamant in not deviating from the plans we did change the suggested location of the bed legs so that we could incorporate them into the side columns of the framework.

This was a very enjoyable project that will not only will give us a lot of versatility with our room space but also looks like a great piece of furniture.
