Labeling the wooden parts

How to Build a Murphy Bed Step 2

After you get your wood cut we recommend you label all the wood parts so you can easily keep track of the different parts as you build your Murphy bed to avoid any mistakes.

Labeling the wooden parts helps you to have an easy work flow and avoid mistakes.

Labeling your wooden parts, as we show above makes the job becomes a lot easier if the parts are already labeled when you have to choose between the left and right parts.

The best is to put all the related bed parts in one area.

For example, put the side rails, the header and footer along with the bed frame parts together for the bed frame construction.
