Introduction: Cat Perch Tree From Junk

Picture of Cat Perch Tree From Junk

This is an easy to build cat tree with minimal tools using junk you may have laying around in just a couple of hours. I went picking over at dads to collect some wood, PVC pipe, rope, carpet, and a plastic tub. 50' of rope only got us 1' of wrapped pipe so I need to go get some more, but for now I am calling it finished since I will have to buy more rope and this tree was made 100% free with re-purposed items.

Step 1: What You Need. A.k.a. What You Can Use:

Picture of What You Need. A.k.a. What You Can Use:

You can use anything you can find really. I had no idea what I was going to dad's for. My 1st plan was to use a pallet for all the wood parts. I just walked around the barn getting ideas and drawing a plan in my head. Found a trailer full of PCV so I grabbed a 6" piece. Found the plastic tub I thought would be good for the base. Grabbed some rope. Found some doors I had taken off of my entertainment stand to fit a bigger TV that was perfect for the perches. Grabbed a bag of screws and a bit of carpet and headed back home.

You can substitute the PVC for cardboard tube.

Tools:
I used my drill, jigsaw, sawzaw, tape measure, and sharpie for this build.
You really don't have to measure anything. I only measured where I wanted the platforms with 2' spacings.

Step 2: Quick Video

This is just a quick video from start to almost finish. The only thing not shown is I screwed the PVC pipe to the side of the tub.
