I made Oliver's scratching post simply because the store bought ones that were decently priced were way too small and he couldn't stretch up on them...
Here's the one I built over the summer:
I kinda decided to do it after seeing one in Foster and Smith that I really like, but kinda started thinking I could build one from scraps in the garage for cheaper (aka free) than buying that one... the only thing I want to eventually add to mine is a top cuz it's just unfinished right nowhttp://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...0&pcatid=10290
Oliver also has 2 homemade horizontal scratchers (ie, they just lay flat on the floor) I just cut up a box so I had like 3 or 4 rectangular shaped pieces of cardboard (same sizes), I stacked them on top of each other and duct taped them together, then I took a couple pair of old jeans that had ripped or no longer fit and cut them open to wrap the cardboard and just hot glued it all nice on the cardboard... he loves them
He's laying on one of them here:http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...er/Hoodie1.jpg
