Help me make a murphy bed in my loft!
I saw the following bed here: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-toggling-bed/step7/null/
It's pretty nifty! I want to use this basic idea for my bed, but I need to address several points:
- Bed needs to suit a memory-foam bed and box-spring. Total weight: Around 175 lbs.
- Bed needs to be easy to fold against the wall. The plans above use a lightweight screw to accomplish this, and I think I need something more heavy-duty.
- I plan to build in a couple of sassy extras such as mood-LED-lighting, as well as a booklight into the frame.
Help me out with your knowledge of things like hinges, supports, and folding things, Instructables community!
