Our Manufacturing Process
Every Hiddenbed, Murphy bed, or other space-saving product at our plant starts with a design that has gone through a process of continual refinement over the years. As we have grown and learned, we have also added completely new and unique designs to our product line - refined designs that you will not find anywhere else. Once the design for a particular model in finalized, it is coded for milling on our CNC machine.
While the design and coding is being finalized, required materials and supplies are ordered. Most of the panels that we use in our production are prefinished hardwood veneer panels chosen for their beauty and durability. These, then, are cut, drilled, and routed with great precision on our flatbed CNC machine to create the needed parts for each bed. Next, the parts are edgebanded, either on our straight-line edgebander or our contour edgebander. These parts are then cleaned, and prepared for final finishing and assembly.
All parts for our beds go through several quality control checks before, during, and after finishing. If the bed is getting a custom stain and finish, it is carefully sanded and sent to the finisher where the stain coats and final lacquer coats are applied. When we receive these back from the finisher, the parts are again inspected, hardware is installed, and the bed is assembled for the final quality control check. The bed is then disassembled into component parts, carefully packed if it is to be shipped, or loaded onto the delivery truck for delivery and installation.
