This is a Murphy Desk Bed that was built using Walnut. The project we completed in December 2015. The large desk folds up onto the face for storage.
More on this version can be found: Walnut Murphy bed with Desk.

The customer wanted a little darker color then just the natural Walnut so we stained it a Dark Walnut stain from Minwax. The staining did a great job of evening out the natural color variations in walnut. I also made a toner using 1 part brown dye and 75 parts thinner to shade the very contrasted color differences that may have been present on some of the wood.
