Default My murphy door build along.

I have the carcasses built already and the parts for the face frames cut out and I will get them put together this evening.
I ordered the hardware kit from Murphy Door to build the surface mount bi-fold door and it arrived yesterday.
Although the typical murphy door is a book case I'm customizing mine to have a single drawer on each side and then a bow cabinet to hold my long bows and recurves as well as the arrows and all of the other stuff that goes along with it.
I worked with the Murphy door people to change up the design and the dimensions, ( Extremely helpful people and friendly by the way ). Here are a couple in progress pics of just putting together the carcass and will get some more tonight.

Got the other face frame glued up and drying, cut the slots for the biscuits and dry fit the first frame to the carcass. It's all fitting pretty good.
