Step 1: Supplies and Tools
2 pieces of wood 1/4" to 1/2" thick cut into 1 foot by 1 foot squares (top and base of tower)
1 piece 4x4 1 to 1 1/2 feet long (I didn't have a 4x4 so I used four 1x1, two 2x4 would work also.
Piece of carpet (enough to cover all surfaces)
Nails or Screws
Something to tack the carpet down (I used fence staples, but furniture tacks would work also)
