Project Information

This is a Murphy bed in my Euro style, which I usually use maple with cherry accents. On this one the customer wanted me to use quarter sawn oak. This is usually used on mission style furniture, but turned out great on this project. The stright lines of the quarter sawn oak was a great compliment to the contermerary styling of the Euro Style Murphy bed.

Another feature that was a first was the bookcases that were accessed from the inside of the cabinet. This make it pratical with some storage areas, but a real clean look when all closed up.

I am currently posting picture and live video feed from my shop. Check out www.wwbeds.com and click on our "Current Projects" link.

Thanks for all the great comments. This was the first time that I used the quarter sawn oak and loved it. I've even built mission style items in the past and used plain red oak. Now I am going to look for excuses to use it.

gizmodyne-I did a lot of research when starting to build them. I use Create-a-bed. You can get it from them for $299 or I sell them for the same price shipping included.
