This is absolutely the very best do-it yourself kit on or off the internet at this time. This is a high quality cabinet hand crafted and sanded smooth. It comes with a simple mechanism that has been throughly tested and is guaranteed to be strong, sturdy and superior to all the other mechanisms. There are two types of Murphy Bed cabinets on the market today; the bifold door type and the panel type.The bifold door type sells generally for less and has a metal frame exclusive of the cabinet that has to be bolted to the ground. The bifold door over time goes out of alignment and needs to be constantly adjusted, due to the weight the hinges need to carry.The Panel bed is more of a piece of furniture that can be moved around in the house after it is assembled.
It is attached at the top with three 3 1/2 inch screws, however it is very important that these screws enter the studs.The front of the panel bed becomes the doors and fold down with the mattress on it. The panel bed has no mechanical springs and no flopping doors,we install two bullet latches in the upper top corners of the panel bed to lock and snap the bed in place when it is closed. We also install a four inch wood handle to the upper right and left corners of the bed face, this is an inconspicuous place yet very functional. We etch the front face so it appears to be four seperate doors. We also add a 3/4 inch x 3 1/4 inch x 59 inch trim board on the bottom and top of the front of the cabinet, this really makes the cabinet look great. I have been building and installing Murphy Beds for over 8 years and as far as I am concerned this is the best system and style on the market today. We make it out of 3/4 inch Birch or Oak, both look great. All edges get wood edge banding and every part is sanded with 220 grit sandpaper. The counter balance for the bed is two nitrogen gas pistons. These pistons are not subject to metal fatigue or catastrophic failier. The pistons are held in place by metal plates and pins, this will allow you to change a piston fairly easy if that should become necessary. I have been told by engineers that these pistons should last 20 years with daily use. All the metal parts are painted with two coates of paint. Metal plates are thru bolted to the bed frame and the side panels with furniture grade antique brass finish bolts(flat head). The hinge is a 5/8 inch metal rod on a metal plate that is bolted and screwed to the bed frame and side panel.I have added to these units a 5/8 inch collar that goes between the bed frame and the side panel, this becomes a one time adjustment so the pressure from the piston against the side panel can't draw the side panel into the bed frame. This allows you to maintain a 3/16 inch exposure between the bed doors and the side panel. This overall system has been on the market for at least 15 years in many different forms.
My system is an overall improvement of these other systems. The most distinguishing characteristic of my beds is the flip over leg. It works as a leg when the bed is down and when bed is up it works to hold the bedding and pillows in place.The other use is to leave the leg out and bring up the bed to have a 59 inch clothes hanger. The leg is in three parts, two legs and one cross bar, they are bolted tightly together so they stay as one unit , The flip over leg is rated to withstand 1000 pounds. No finish is applied to the wood in the kit form at this time. This you will have have done or do it yourself, it is not that hard if you follow instructions.I recommend useing a wood conditioner(oil based) takes 15 minutes to dry (prevents blotching and variations in color) then an oil based stain, apply with brush wipe off right away with cloth, let dry 8 hours.Most people prefer two-three coats of water based polyurethane. I lay all the parts out on tables and a sealer coat is applied. After about an hour( dries in about 15 Minutes) it is to be sanded with 220 grit sandpaper and then a second coat of water based polyurethane is applied. I use the Pro series for (FLOORS) offered by Home Depot,however Polycrylic by Minwax works great to, the only real trick is the parts need to be laying flat or you can get get runs. If you are doing this in a two stall garage there should be no problem with space.It dries fast so dust should not be a big problem. Brush lightly while drying to remove small bubbles.Painting is good also and is easier to do after assembly, birch is the best choice for paint, due to less grain.
All of the wood parts are numbered and are pre drilled. The 1x2 supports that become the bed frame need to be countersunk by the installer. There are a few supplies that will be needed: a battery operated screw gun, 6 inch #2 square driver, countersink, 7/16 inch wrench,allen wrenches, titebond glue. Liquid nails, clamps and a stud finder. All of these items can be purchased from a local hardware store.We include a pictorial assembly and installation manuel that is very comprehensive,plus you can call for personal attention if you are having difficulties.All wood parts are held together by wide thread pocket screws, it is very easy to assemble if the instructions are followed in sequence.

The total weight of the bed is 189 pounds.

. There is a (3 1/4 X width of Unit) trim on this Bed top and bottom. If you would like to buy different size side cabinets I also offer them. It is a Full size Murphy Panel Bed with two side cabinets built right onto the vertical of the Murphy Bed. It comes with four fixed shelves and six adjustable shelves. These sides shelves are 12 inches deep by 15 inches wide. the total width of the whole unit is 88 1/2 inches. I think it looks better with 12 inch side cabinets. The sides die into the bed cabinet(15inches deep) and gives it perspective.It is made out of 3/4 inch Birch,however Oak is in the pictures.If you would like to see a Birch unit go to the Table bed in my store and the Library bed both are Birch, with just poly on them, If you like Oak it is 5% more due to weight and cost of material. There are optional doors on the bottom of the side cabinets with European hidden hinges for $39.00 each includes shipping.. If you want we can add lights for $110.00. These are 3 inch diameter recessed 40 watt lights, two in the bed cabinet header(Brass or Black).It also comes with a high quality on-offf switch Flip over leg and hinges are powder coated steel. All optional items prices include shipping. This comes with a six page assembly instructions and five pages of drawings and 10 assembly pictures. It should take about 8 hours to assemble Please feel free to call and ask questions before ordering. 505-424-3634 and 505-470-8902
FINISHING:If you are not going to paint this unit I recommend an oil based conditioner brushed on with a 3 inch brush wipe off excess and let dry 15 minutes this prevents blotching and makes the color more uniform. Stain with oil based stain, brush on with 2 inch brush wipe off right away with cotton cloth, let dry 8 hours. Apply water based polyurethane with 2 inch brush, its called a sanding sealer)let dry 15 to 30 minutes sand lightly with 220 grit sandpaper add second coat let dry sand. 3 coats is where I stop some people put on 5 coats for a real smooth surface.I use satin based so it doesn't shine, I like the Pro Series sold at Home Depot it has the least amount of bubbles in it. The thing about water based poly is that it runs easy so it is best to apply it before assembly. The second thing about water based poly is it likes to bubble, tiny little bubbles need to be lightly brushed out as it is drying. You can use an oil based polyurethane but you need a gas mask. I have tried Varnish(oil based stain and oil based poly mixed together. Sounds great but works poor. I spent hours sanding out runs and color blotches. I do not recommend Varnish. Most of my customers just put three coats of water based poly right over the wood without stain, I think it looks fine, but this is up to you.

We have taken out the plastic feet to level the unit because they were too wide and sometimes chip the side panel. I will send them upon request.
