Step 1: Bottom Supports
Cut 2 identical wooden poles how long your desired cat scratching block is. (not including bed)
Step 2: Attach the Poles to Headboard
Fasten the supports to a flat piece of wood as long as your desired scratching block is. Then screw a base of plexiglass to the bottom supports. (Plexiglass bit optional)
Step 3: Bed Base
Screw or fasten a shoebox to the other end of the poles.
Put a pillow into the shoebox. This will make the bed.
Step 5: Create Scratching Bed
Hot glue the cardboard scratching post to the plexiglass or wooden lower beams.
Step 6: You're Done!
Thanks for completing this cat bed! Painting is a great way to finish it off, but of course that is optional.
