This was my first big project made in my 20’x12’ shop. Project is solid Oak, finished in Red Oak Stain. I just started into woodworking a couple of years ago so this was a major learning project, especially the crown molding.

Nice project!

I like that you made it like a piece of furniture instead of a built in. This way, you can re arrange the room or take it with you if you move. It makes the room feel bigger too.

Just noticed the picture above the bed. we lost our Golden, Jack last Saturday…. such wonderful companions.

Great looking Murphy Bed. I know very well the amount of work that went into building it as I
recently posted the one I completed and it did not have the side cabinets as yours does.

Looking forward to see your next project. Keep it up!

Very nice. I also built a Murphy bed project awhile back – largest thing I’d made. Yours is very well designed and executed – congratulations.
