THE BED-INVISIBLE

BEDS OF DARKNESSTHE MYSTERY OF MY GRANDMOTHER’S TRUNK. Looking at it, you can assume anything you want, but not what is hidden inside… the bed. Here rises and becomes a headboard cover, opening rolled coils rack and pinion height and the mattress is hinged to the front wall, unfolding the accordion-supporting sidewalls. Quickly and effectively, like a circus magician.

However, this is not the focus, but the original foldable design offered to the readers of the Hungarian magazine “Earmaster”. You will know her better.

 
Rigidly connected in an unusual bed only the front and rear panels with one of its sidewalls. To last hinges are mounted on two side panels connected between themselves with hinges, allowing them folded like an accordion inside the box. Their ends a string of panels on the same hinge connected to the rear panel, which is on top of the piano hinge attaches the lid. That’s the whole secret of the trunk bed.
Unusual in this design and practicality. He’s going from the rails and missed the bottom two cords or fabric tapes. The length of the rails equal to the inner distance between the side panels, which for them laying full planks so as to have on top of mattress also rested at their lower edges to panel bed. The height can be assembled from the paired slats, if their thickness is insufficient to withstand the weight of a person.

Fig. 4. The sequence of the connection
 
Fig. 4. The sequence of the connection “dovetail” for rigid panels:
 
1 layout, 2 — a selection of slots with a chisel, 3 — marking the second panel.

 
Sidewalls of the cover and the bed will fit Board thickness 15-20 mm and a width of 250-300 mm. Since these blanks are difficult to find, they can be obtained by gluing carpentry or casein glue well-planed narrow boards. Easier, of course, to use chipboard, sawn it on the panel of the desired width.
 
In this case, joining them at the corners of the stiff joints perform better on plug-in round thorns and glue.
 
Board advisable to join in a “dovetail”. It is better to mark and select a chisel corresponding slots (according to the drawings) initially into one Board and then use it to transfer the pattern to the other Board where you also choose counter-grooves, but is offset from the first by one step. The connection must be tight, it is going using a wooden hammer with a pre-spreading the received lock any wood glue. This version of the dock is visible on the tab.
To chest looked more traditionally, the side panel cover top can have some radius of curvature, then when sheathing them with plywood and get a small coolest top. Such a plywood cover did not cave in, bottom it is necessary to introduce an additional stiffener in the form of bars or narrow boards, repeating the radius of the cover.
 
At the corners and hinge joints of the panels it is advisable to install furniture caster wheels.
 
For decorative purposes the entire surface of the trunk can be covered with metal strip (from any container), varnished or painted with enamel or oil paint dark green, brown or cherry color. However, there is a matter of taste.
 
SET IN… THE BEDSIDE TABLE. Thank you very much for publishing my “Module headset” (“M-K”, № 8, 1984). Now I’m not a student, a doctor, working in the city of Ukhta. I want to share another of his development of universal furniture.
 
In this construction, combined table, Desk, chair and bed. Folded dimensions its really close to the dimensions of conventional nightstands: 600X720X1040 mm. a Small manipulation of the panels — and we will receive a written table, the lid of which can be adjusted to the desired angle like a drawing Board. In extended, the table is doubled, turning into a dining.

Down on the bottom panel-footboard one of the planes and putting on this basis one stored in the table to the large pillows, get a recliner. But if bunching under legs to spread out at full length and lay them on the folding plane, and the top three all large and small pillows — bedside table turns into a single bed with a width of 1000 mm and located above the head lying the top panel of the tables for convenience folds up.
 
To fold the back cushion in a recess of the bedside tables, you must first lift the auxiliary panel to the back wall: it will fit a small pillow. Rest on top of lowered back panel, vertically.
 
Cushion made of several layers of foam and sheathed with furniture or decorative fabric. The size of each large cushion 140X500X1000 mm, small — 140X420X1000 mm.
 
The material of all panels, including large folding and supporting small — particle Board and the back n bottom surfaces — hardboard, plywood.
 
Taking described the design as a module, moleno to make doubles option or to manufacture dual-combined furniture, such as for children’s. Depending on the selected dimensions (the figures are approximate).
