French Fry Friday is when I put a focus on those smaller accessories. This week I’m turning my attention to some small legs that I added to a recent murphy bed. I’ll write about the bed at a later day seeing that I’m about a month behind on posting projects, but I wanted to show off it’s legs.
This project was one that was going to a bed and breakfast. They planned on using the bed in the down position and keeping it that way until the space was needed for an event. The then would raise it up and the cabinets on the side would hold serving items.
Since it would be in the down position for most of the time, they wanted it to look more permanent. I built these small boxes, chamfer the top edges and wrapped it in crown. I built a proto type, that is what I call something that I mess up on. It was too bulky and no way to really attach it to anything. The second one work out perfect. I made is smaller and only wrapped the crown on 3 sides. By doing that and allowing the crown to protrude ¾”, it allowed a bracket to be attached to the Murphy bed legs and keep it secure.
