Re: Space saving tips

Moshart, that's brilliant! I'm definitely installing this idea!
Oh, and a murphy bed is also a great idea. Still mulling over making one of those, though.

Re: Space saving tips

Good old Murphy beds....

Side Mount hardware A fold down bed mechanism is perfect for guests, small rooms and apartments. This finely engineered hardware is counterbalanced for smooth operation without binding or overextending. Mechanism uses a sophisticated piston lift system rather than old-fashioned springs that can snap back. Beds are held securely closed, and open gently for added safety. Steel pivot pin and bracket points install easily without adjustments. Includes instructions for basic cabinet construction and instructional DVD. Choose Side Mount Hardware in Twin, Full or Queen Sizes.


Vertical Mount hardware A fold down bed mechanism is perfect for guests, small rooms and apartments.

Bed plans A fold down bed is a great space saver, but now, with our Drop Leaf addition, you get two projects in one! This plan uses side mount hardware (89591-Full or 89608-Queen) only.


Like those pricey "pop-up" tables you see in the expensive RVs?


Woodsmith Convertible Table Plan Pop the top of this elegant coffee table and youíll find yourself with a table thatís at a comfortable height for work, dining or play.

More plans at Rockler.

That's an awesome idea...

Re: Space saving tips

If you are going to use it in a shower, you may want to pop a couple of tiny holes in the bottom to let the water drain out or use a fabric mesh version.
