What do cats like .. yeah some things to scratch, or just a cardboard box to sit in . But don’t we like
it when we have something nice in our house ? We sure do . look what this person made with only this tree.
She started by cutting down a small tree, removing the leaves, and trimming all the branches.
She cut the branches so the tree would stand even without a base. This thing is going to be the center of a lot of cat activity so it has to be sturdy.
Using a circle jig, she cut two base discs for weight and stability.
Then the base was attached using lag screws.
Looking good! But we’re not done yet!
Next, she used a laser level to cut the branches smoothly and evenly.
Then it was time to start making the platforms.
She traced the platforms onto plywood then used a jigsaw to cut the shapes.
Using a belt sander, she rounded the edges to make them safe for play.
And a nice lacquer coat makes them pleasing to the eye.
They were almost ready to go on.
But everyone knows how much cats like a good piece of carpet to claw.
