I adopted a cat several days ago.As she grew up, she needed more space and activities，and it happened that I have a headache on how to deal with a bunch of accessories left under my house renovation.An inspiration suddenly ran into my mind why not make a cat tree for her ?So here we are!
Step 1:Step 1 Prepare work
First of all, you should make a simple design on paper and make sure that your design is based on your space where you will place it and it's necessary to consider your cat's personality ,my princess Fluffy(her lovely name) likes jump up and down ,climb here and there,so I determined to build a tall cat tree with perches,a little privacy room and hemp pillar stands.
I drew a really very simple design sketch,emm...well okay ,I'm really not good at drawing .And then I list all the materials and tools I have and what I should to buy .Here is my checklist of stuff may be helps,if you want to have a try too .
Plywood or Particle Boad (min:2"x4"x8")
50 ft Hemp Rope
Tools:Jigsaw, hand drill, glue gun, nail gun, hole opener
Other accessories: toy balls, trash cans, glue sticks, wood wax oil, nails, etc.
Step 2:Step 2 Cut all materials to size and painted with varnish
Cut all the boards into sizes and shapes that you designed with the jigsaw .Drill the pattern of the kitten's claws with a puncher and jigsaw ,this is the most strenuous step in the entire process,you need more patience to do it .
Then polished with sandpaper .
Varnished the board and dry them ,I varnished
three times and be proved later that that's really neccesary ,the surface is smooth and beautiful ,easy to clean and waterproof .
Step 3:Step 3 Cut the pipes into sizes and wrapped with hemp rope
Finally, 7 columns (length 25"), 2 columns(length 16"),1 column (length 32") were cut out.
Seal the ends of the tube with a nail gun as the kitty condo's climb stand.
After that ,wrapped the hemp rope onto the stands with a glue gun helps to make sure the rope is firmly attached to the column，to help prevent them been ruined by your kitty's paw.
Step 4:Step 4 Make the cat roll perches
I saw off the bottom of an abandoned trash can, and then sewed a flannel cloth to make it warm and soft .
Praise my inspiration on your knees ,humanbeings !hahaha...
Step 5:Step 5 Assemble it !
Finally, the last step, very simple, use screws to assemble these parts!
Now,Please ,enjoy your time ,your majesty .
Step 6:Step 6
All well done ,guys, thank you very much for reading ,please vote for me if you like my cat tree.THANK YOU VERY MUCH .
