Many people have asked where I got this scratching tree. My wife and I built this one over a weekend in our home shop. It is actually a prototype for a new line of cat furniture our small business has been developing.
If you have the tools, its not too hard to build. The hardest part is wrapping the posts with sisal rope. We used 1/2" thick sisal rope. It took about 250 feet of rope to wrap all six posts.
The (3) lower posts are 3" in diameter and 25" tall.
The large post is 4" in diameter and 45" tall.
The (2) upper posts are 3" in diameter and 30" & 40" tall.
The square bottom is your typical 24" x 24" base, only ours is 1.5" thick and finished with hardwood banding.
The 2nd level base is made out of the same material as the bottom, only we cut it into an "L" shape.
The upper 3 levels/perches are made of edge-glued hardwood pine discs. Two of them are 15" in diameter and one is 18" in diameter.
Our goal is to design a line of premium quality cat trees that will look good in the home AND be something the cats will acutally use. If anyone has any other questions, I'll be happy to answer them.
