This is a twin size red oak Murphy bed I built in Michigan and assembled here is our park model in Az. It went together very well but I think I should have used the 100# gas springs that I had originally. These are 50# and take too much effort to lift the bed. I’ll change them out next year. I also added a shot of the flip up foot and the small shelves I made to fill n the space on the left. Space is at a premium so it has to be used efficiently. There are 7 shelves on the right but not yet trimmed out with fascia boards.
The bed is finished with Zar 120 stain and wipe on satin poly.
The build process is in this blog: http://lumberjocks.com/Slovenian/blog/36787
