Really impressive, jbay. You are a real master. Will you be bringing any of the electricity from the wall out to where it’s accessible? That’s between you and the client, but I was just curious.

Very nice – will look great in that space. Really like the side pull-out.

I’m getting started with a Murphy bed and looking at the wood slats that will be under the mattress in your picture brings a question – what finish do you use for the slats and support structures that will remain unseen? I’m planning on using some General Finishes High Performance on the whole project (including slats,etc). I’ll stain the visible parts but was just going to leave the oak natural with GF for the unseen. First attempt at making a bed and would appreciate any insights you are willing to offer. Thank you…and again, great project.

Well built. Rally like the pull out drawers. Very cool stuff. Way beyond my ability but one can dream…

I think that your construction looks great and your customers should be thrilled.

For me, white paint on anything doesn’t thrill me. Most natural colors are fine. White just seems too sterile.

I’m in the same boat on my current project, Monte. Gotta give the client what they ask for though. Grin and bear it.

“Designers” are the bane of wood lovers. I can’t recall the amount of times they’ve insisted on this type of expensive wood, or that type of expensive wood….only to stain it so dark, you can’t even tell what it is.
Most recent was a $80,000.00 dollar Walnut stair and railing job that got stained….black.
With most of the high end designers, you learn not to even suggest alternatives. They just gasp and look at you like you’re stupid.

Thanks Tony,
I’m not sure if it’s a trend, but I’m seeing a lot more painted furniture in High End homes these days.

Thanks Desert,
That is a picture of the concept table, (not the one I built.)

Yet it is still on my bucket list…. with my own changes. Also, Yes to “more painted…” , I saw this coming in the early 2000’s with high end imported Euro Italian cabinetry (Scottsdale/Paradise Valley-AZ) only to be “bastardised” by IKEA knockoffs…
Best to you and others…

After I’m paid, I couldn’t care less. But, no one has ever requested paint on anything but MDF.

It’s a job. I’ll take whatever comes my way. I have a family to support.
Maple paints very nice. Nothing wrong with mdf if used properly. A place for everything.
