Introduction: Castle of Cats

Picture of Castle of Cats

Hello everyone,

We build a castle for our cats. It was easy to assemble but takes a little bit time.

The dimension are height: 150 cm

wide: 80 cm

depth: 60 cm

Materials are;

For structure, we use osb and wood bars. Around 1 plaque of osb and around 4 meter wood bar.

For upholstery, flock fabric ( anti cat scratching) ( around 8 meters)

for the hammock and doors, plush ( around 2-3 meters)

for the upper hammock, a fabric looks like leather.

I recommend the flock fabric for making it durable. Also if they cat climb, they have to follow the road to reach up. (=

for scratching bars, we used around 60 meters rope.

Tools are needed;

Sewing machine

Stamp ( prefer to use electrical or compressor working ) dont use manual stamps for your wrist health.

Clamps

Hot Glue

Drill

Jigsaw

Screws

also you can use non toxic wood glue.

Step 1: Building the Structure

Picture of Building the Structure

To build cylinders, 4 mm mdf sliced 3 cm pieces. Quantity depends how
radius you prefer your cylinder. We glued slices of mdf on a regular fabric and to cover the cylinder. But first you have to make a structure for it.

I also recommend to upholster inside of cylinder for safety.

Step 2: Decorating

Making balcony was not easy. I am sorry I dont have any photos structure of balconies but just a circle wood piece and upholstered. Assemble with screws but to make stronger we tied it with rope. Also it fits conceptual (=

We covered doors with plush to hide bad craftmanship.

This is fantastic! I love the fact that you actually made those cylindrical pillars from scratch - that alone is amazing!

Great work, can't wait to see what you make next :)

What did you use for the cat beds (the ones that are growing out of the sides like fungus)? And how are they a attached? I have been looking for kid's basketball hoops for free or cheap, but no luck so far...

necdetgizem made it! (author)guidess 2016-06-18

I made a structure with plywood for beds. Cut it circle. Also you need piece of wood to attach the fungus bed to cylinder. (= You can see the screw from photo. If you need I can draw 3d for better explaining.
