  1. Pivoting Bookcase Murphy Bed| Custom

  3. Base ball loft | Custom

    This was a project that we finished and delivered on Christmas eve. It is a baseball loft. It is based off my baseball bed that I normally build with the customizable headboard. This is real similar to the baseball loft I built last August. Here are some of the changes I made to this one. I...
  4. Mission Wall With Hidden Bookcases | Custom

    This is a Murphy Wall bed completed on 10-01-2007, built using the mission/shaker style. I called it Mission because I normally build this one using oak wood. This particular customer chose to use maple. It looks more shaker to me with the real clean lines and flat panels. They also selected...

    This was part of a group that was designed for a small room. It had the Murphy bed with a built in folding desk, a corner desk, a corner bookcase, and a TV stand. I'm going to focus on the Murphy bed and corner desk combination today. The design process took longer then expected. We had some...

  7. Built in Bookcase Door

    Background I was headed to a friends for a long weekend when he requested I help him build a bookcase as a door for what he would turn into a hidden room. He didn't really have a plan, only some videos he had seen from youtube and his only tools were a drill and sawhorses. On top of that we...

    This is a bed that was completed in February 2010. It is a murphy bed turned sideways with a chalkboard and a wide bookcase. I've build a sideways chalkboard bed before but not with the desk style bookcase on the end. The problem with the horizontal murphy wall beds is unless you place it in...
  9. Eagle Nest Chest

    The Eagle Nest Chest I have been adding a combination locking system to hope chests for some time now and one day a fella commented that he would like to see the dials hidden behind a false panel, that it too would be locked from access. How it works: The nest sitting on top of the chest...
  10. Magnets & Secret Compartment for my Handgun!

    I had two goals for this project. First, upgrade our keychain holder that hangs by our front door. Second was to store and hide my handgun when it isn't in my pocket. Goal #1 was accomplished by building a 12×18 x 5" keychain holder made of cherry. It is finished in a couple coats of Deft...

  12. Twin White Murphy bed | Custom

    Hey everyone! Another project the list of items I published earlier that I wanted to do. I call this bandsaw jewelry box "porpoise" Now this is a unique box because the one challenge I wanted to do was create a "secret hidden drawer". Take a close to see where it might be. It's behind the...
  14. Gun Bed | Custom

    The best protection form people stealing you stuff is for the thief not to know it is there in the first place. This bed did just that. Keep in mind, I don't tell city/state of this customer. It is the customer's design. The headboard lid is removable and exposes a couple trays for hand...
  15. Smithsonian Murphy bed | Custom

    This is a Murphy bed that was completed in September 2010 but some of the building pictures can be found in August . I call it the Smithsonian because "Smith" was the name of the customer I first designed this one for. Normally this one has a desk that folds out of the desk but this customer...

    This is a new style finished in December 2011. It was designed by the customer. I've built a mission style Murphy bed for them in the past in black. She came with me with the design and the layout worked nice with a folding table. Most tables added to Murphy beds look like they were just...
  20. Tall Side Stand with Hidden Compartment

    This is my most recent creation. It's a bit of a mutt as far as woods go, I should have paid more attention instead of just using whatever I found (obviously). It's a very tall nightstand or side table. I think the height makes it humorous but it also helps access the hidden compartment. To...
