This is a Murphy bed that was completed on 5-9-2008. I call it the Excalibur. This bed has arched raised panels on the face along with fluting on the trim beside the doors. Above the fluting is the release leg that unlocks if from the cabinet and acts at the support feet when the bed is in the down position. Above the feet are rosettes that were cut in.
To tie it in to the customers existing furniture I matched the color and changed the crown up a little. The customer had some dental molding that they wanted to match. To get this to work I had to deviate from my standard cut list and make a taller header and sides. The dental molding wraps around and I needed to figure a break that would allow it to disassemble and reassemble to where the molding looked seamless.
The color is a dye stain followed by a wiping stain. The dye is a combination of brown and red dyes with a lot of thinner and the stain coat is Red Mahoney from Minwax. The cherry colors was matched off a customers drawer.
