Makes a 'Murphy ' bed seem old fashioned.

No THAT is fabulous! If only it could fully contain the mattress too it would be outstanding. Very cool idea. I'd be interested in plans for it.

Yes - a folding mattress in a matching same size box

John that is a very neat thread so thanks for posting it, I will save the idea in my file, maybe I am not looking around enough as I have not seen that bed before and after I have then I would make that as a spare bed before I would use a sofa or a blow up, for all you persons whop have asked about plans I think that this bed could be made without plans, you would have to set out how big you were going to make it and that brings up the problem, it would be easy to store the bed folded up but what do you do with the mattress? There are some thinner ones that would roll up and not take up that much space, However once you decided what mattress you are going to use then it could be made as you go along, the bed could be made to suit any mattress but if anyone does find plans then they should add a link to the thread, I have seen many beds that don't pass the test of time, they get very shakey as they get older and I have fixed a few of them of that problem so I do think that this bed would be a good spare bed, if it was not used that much, but it may not last that long if the sleepers were not always asleep in it, bed frames have to be strong to hold themselves together and slats can sag and deform if they are not strong so when you combine a light bed frame and a mattress that rolls up then this may not be the bed that it seems to be, still it is a neat idea. n

+1 with Neville.

I want to build this for our spare bedroom. It would be perfect for that room. I lot more steady and provide more support than just a basic futon frame.

Now that is cool. I'm not so sure about the bed part, but the chest is really great.
