Extreme Heavy Duty Work Bench
Full size cat scratching / climbing post
It's secured by anti-slipping material (cork) and by tightening the spanner screws at the bottom. Described in step 5.
How is this secured into the ceiling to be stable. I want to do something like this in a room with a very high ceiling.. I wonder if I can just use a corner shelf and a spring system to stabilize the top part?
Nice! I really like it!(Especially your Drill-Press, I'd love to have one that size!)
Just to add my two cents -- my cats have learned to shimmy down the post backwards (with their tail facing the ground), so it is possible that your cats would be okay, but it's definitely awkward for them and they much prefer it when I leave my high-backed chair near it so that they can jump onto the chair back rather than backing down the pole.
Noted. I will definitely install some step-down shelves then. Thank you very much for the reply!
It's to high for my cats to jump from the top to the floor. It injures their paws. (Some cats learns to climb downwards with its tail down. Never seen it myself though). If they are just climbing a metre, they jumps straight down.I would STRONGLY suggest some kind of 'step-down' shelves, for your cats safety. And it's also recommended to have some kind of 'anti-slippery' surface on top of the shelf, because they often race down with full speed.
Thank you so much for sharing this. I am very excited to build this and report back with photos. I have a question though. Do you think the 2 "step-down" shelves that you have on the wall are absolutely necessary for the cat to get back on the ground? Do you find that your cat ever jumps from the post itself? I want to give my cats that "relaxing" shelf at the top, but not sure I have enough wall space for the "step-down" shelves.
Thanks for feedback. Hope Kovu enjoys it!

Will improve this my working corner
Thanks for the input. Realy nice and functional working area. Will use some tricks on mine existing "man cave" corner. I will add laminated surface and some top shelves. Great!
