Introduction: Cat Tree by Frosta X

I have cats from February 2014. In the year I have been adopt three stray cats.

Inspired by Frosta X : http://www.ikeahackers.net/2012/06/frosta-x.html

stuff : 5 Frostas

tool:Drill, 3M double-sided tape, silicone, screws (for wood), wood glue,paper tape,

can help you sawing wood friends

Step 1: ​Arrange the Patterns

Arrange the most beautiful patterns on the floor. It is easier to arrange springboards. You can always modify until satisfied.

Note to comply with the size of the wall.

I measured the size of the walls. Then use tiles forecast the range of cat tree.

Step 2: Stick Together

Sticking together one day use Wood glue and clamp.

The next day using an electric drill and screws to make work more solid.

Work is divided into several parts in combination.

Step 3: Paper Tape on the Wall

Because the work is heavy, then you want to use silicon to stick to the wall.

Draw the cat tree with a pencil and then put the paper tape outline in the wall.

If silicon extruded out of range, release the paper tape can have a pretty face.

Step 4: Just Double-sided Tape and Silicone

I just used double-sided tape and silicone fixed to the wall.

The next day it does not fall off.

Step 5: Next Day

Step 6: Happy Cats

I'm planning to make this with 3 Frosta stools (6 platforms) and mounting it to studs in the wall with brackets. Should only cost around $50 which is half as expensive than most cat trees and they're typically ugly and bulky. I'm looking forward to the low profile and minimalistic look of this cat tree, and I plan on adding green IKEA rug to the platforms for better grip (but in a way that still highlights the birch wood).

looks very nice however I would be concerned about this being stable since it's not anchored to the wall apparently? At the other page it says they used silicone and tape- that isn't safe. Also there is no accurate description of what actual materials are used and where to buy them? Where are the curved pieces of wood from? Ikea?

As awesome and amazing as this is it is not a Pallet based project. It is an IKEA hack. http://www.ikeahackers.net/2015/06/cat-tree-by-frosta-x.html

The author is the same person.

Yes, but it is not made out of pallets, it is made from Frosta X stools from IKEA. That is the issue I have with this, because it is the wrong categorized.
Amazing idea, but not made of pallets.

Very cool! I want to make one for my cat now!

Thanks. It is easy to make. Enjoy it.

Did you use pallet wood for this project?

Yes, I think so.
