A 2-person folding bed of 160.0x200.0 cm for a guest room. So a frame for the mattress, a casing around this frame and a cupboard in which the bed can be stored. This room is also used as a hobby room.

Custom folding bed frame

First made the frame for the bed and then the whole frame. Then folding legs mounted and hinge points. After the 'tray' was ready, the cabinet was made in which the bed is folded and the hinge point mounted there. The specific materials (legs, hinges, compression springs) are ordered through In America this is called a Murphy bed. The building plan was adapted from inches to centimeters and to mattress sizes for the Netherlands (60 x 80 inch became 160.0 x 200.0 cm).
