This is my Contempo Murphy bed in a custom matched cherry finish. We added 24” bookcase with 3 drawers in each.

The finish is a little different then I normally do. This customer wanted a higher gloss. Normally I put a medium sheen on my furniture.

This was built using maple wood in the month of December 2012 finished up in January 2013.

I have to say Chris, that out of all the beds I’ve seen you make throughout the years, this one really appeals to me.
Clean, crisp details. Beautiful finish and you usual quality build.
Nice job.
