Features a state-of-the-art piston lift system and includes a step-by-step instructional DVD. Our Create-A-Bed mechanism comes with a step-by-step construction and assembly DVD to build your own murphy bed. This is a detailed “how to” to help you build your own faux dresser murphy bed! Whether you choose to call them Murphy beds or wall beds, they feature three key components: the lift mechanism, the bed frame and the cabinet.
The force is balanced so that the weight of the bed frame and mattress together is enough to hold the bed down on the floor. Murphy Bed product options range from basic lift-mechanism kits, which cost $429 to $599 and require you to build the Murphy Bed frame and cabinet from scratch, to complete ready-to-install Murphy Bed kits which include the cabinetry and assembly instructions. Most of my building time was spent cutting and finishing the large plywood pieces before assembly. Cover all of the plywood edges that will be left exposed with heat-activated edge banding, which is sold in rolls. After sanding, I chose to apply three coats of wipe-on polyurethane finish to all of the panels before assembling them because it is easier to work on the flat panels individually. Installing the Murphy Bed and cabinet are probably the easiest parts of the project, but they are also the most important for ensuring safe operation. Connecting the pistons to the ballstud plates is the final step before securing the cabinet to the wall. Use the appropriate type and number of fasteners for the size of bed you are installing and for the room’s wall framing (see “Anchoring a Murphy Bed” photo).

Today’s guest post offering advice for your book release is from Michael Murphy, who wrote a wonderful article for us before on how to get publicity. Release day is filled with activity, blog appearances, and interactions on the growing list of social media sites. Whether you’re an independent author or your book is being published by a traditional publisher, as an author you’ll be responsible for marketing and promoting your book. What was the single most important thing you did to promote your book before it was released?
The single thing that helped my award-winning book Look Good Now and Always become a best-seller was to put it in the correct category. This is great information, and it’s so true that a wise author lays the groundwork long before the book is published. As a long-time editor for independent authors (more than ten years now) and as an indie publisher since 2011, I think what would tremendously help this checklist would be to mention at what stage of book production these steps should be done.
For instance, would you suggest having the book cover (at least the front) designed FIRST so that you can use it in all the buzz-building? Then, which steps should be done during the month or two it takes to edit, design, and format the interior of the book?

Since most authors are now managing that process themselves or they’re hiring someone like me to do all those steps for them, your fantastic advice would be complete if you included the book production timeframe in each block of marketing steps mentioned in this article.
I look forward to your reply, and possibly and revised article with this very helpful information included!

Instead of a ginarmous full size wall mounted murphy bed this smaller unit would be perfect for a single guest. Some spring systems feature adjustable tension, but piston systems are typically not adjustable. I used a table saw to cut the plywood, but you could also use a circular saw with a straightedge guide. The Motivo Interiors provides detailed diagrams that show where each piece of hardware is located. The bed frame and rails are joined with simple butt joints fastened with glue and wood screws or finish nails. When a murphy bed is in the open position, the lift mechanism is storing the energy that will be used to help lift the bed. Drive one fastener into each stud located behind the bed, or drive masonry anchors at 16-in. We receive a small compensation for the recommendation if you click through on them and make a purchase. A full-time writer and part-time urban chicken rancher in Arizona, he is the author of the new book  The Yankee Club, the first in the Jake and Laura Series. It includes posting about the event and accepting congratulations from friends, family, fellow authors, and readers. A succinct description can be used anywhere: website, blog, e-mail, social media, parties, family get-togethers, elevators, stoplights. I enjoy getting my picture taken about as much as I enjoy trips to the dentist, but you want to get a modern look and several poses that you can use on your website, blog, and social media sites. Accumulate e-mail and mailing addresses of media members you plan to contact about the release of your novel. A street team is a group of fans who support your work and spread the word on social media. As noted above, reviews can pique the interest of readers, enticing them to pre-order your book. Pre-orders of your book will be noticed by your publisher, so get the word out as soon as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online retailers make your book available for pre-order. Re-engineer what others have done and are doing before their book’s release, particularly those books within the genre you write. We’re responsibility for our marketing and promoting our books, whether we are legacy or indie publishers. Authors might want to ask advanced readers what category they think it belongs in before their launch, and really fine tune that for best sales.

There will be no re-write, but you might have given Michael an idea for a product he can create and sell. I appreciate you sharing your wisdom—especially since I am terrible at the marketing aspect of being a writer. Both systems operate under a similar principle — they create force that helps lift the bed into the closed position. If the mattress that you are using with a nonadjustable piston or spring system is too light, the bed will rise slightly or float off the floor.
A typical installation does not contain a box spring, and the mattress cannot be more than 12 in.
If the cabinet is not properly secured, the lift mechanism could pull the cabinet away from the wall and down on top of the bed. The cost of any affiliate product is the same to you whether you use an affiliate link or not. Release day brings joy, excitement, and pride – a deluge of emotions much like the birth of a child (something I also know a little about). Results are hard to quantify, but blog tours (also known as virtual book tours) can reach followers you don’t have. There is nothing like a to-do list when facing a big project–especially a backwards countdown. This murphy bed mechanism features a state-of-the-art piston lift system that needs no adjustments.. In this case, you must add a small amount of weight under the mattress to keep it grounded.
The finished bed is large, so if you have a narrow hallway or stairway to contend with, consider machining and finishing the parts in your shop or garage and assembling the bed in its designated room. The last step before installing the Murphy Bed is to attach the face panels to the frame and rail assembly. If the piston does not fit, double-check the ball-stud and pivot-hardware locations and adjust them if necessary. Establish your credibility and your brand with posts that demonstrate your writing expertise and attract followers with content that doesn’t focus on your book. Be ready for rejections, knowing that one “yes” can have a significant impact on your sales. Allow it to cool for a few minutes and then trim off the excess with a utility knife, chisel or special edge-banding trimmer, also available where edge banding is sold.
Finally, you must have an egress window (a window large enough for a person to climb through) in any room that will be used for sleeping.
