Murphy bed

Here we have a Murphy bed I worked on a while ago.  It starts as a small box with a few hinges, odds and ends, and some instructions.  The DVD that comes with it is helpful for creating the first one.  The only annoying thing is the constant warnings not to modify the design in any way which is quite valid in many things there are pneumatic cylinders that must be located in just the right place and the main hinges must be located correctly or it won’t open right.  Anyway we had to make the box deeper than the original plan and so we created a storage space behind the headboard.  Makes for a good place to keep pillows. And the rather large drawers on each sideside work for blankets.  The shelves are adjustable and I don’t have a good picture of my jig for drilling the holes, have to create one next week.  One more interesting thing, the darker blue outside rectangles on top half of the bed are actually the legs. The fun continues.
