Do you have cats that have tons of energy? Are you tired of searching for the perfect cat tree? Are you worried about paying too much for a cat tree that you could easily make yourself? Well, I have the perfect project for you. It is a wonderful and really easy to make cat tree with 2 levels, along with toys and anything else a cat may want. All these supplies are easily found in your local pet store and hardware store.
Step 1: Materials
- base (2 ft X 2 ft plywood)
- 2 circular platforms (18” in diameter)
- 1 dowel (2” 4 ft tall)
- 2 dowels (1” 4 ft tall)
- carpet scraps
- kitty toys
Step 2: Step 1
Gather all supplies and prepare to build!
Step 3: Step 2
Take 1 circular platform and cut a hole near the edge of it (make sure the hole can fit the largest dowel through it 23 ½” from the bottom).
Step 4: Step 3
Once pieces fit together, screw them into place so that they won’t move too much.
Step 5: Step 4
Next, take 1 of the smaller dowels and cut it 23 ½” so that way it can fit with the circular platform and big dowel.
Step 6: Step 5
Screw in screws so that way it will be stable.
Step 7: Step 6
After that, take the last circular platform and dowel and attach them to the large dowel.
Step 8: Step 7
Screw them together.
Step 9: Step 8
Hang on now, we’re almost done! Attach the base to the 3 legs of the tree.
Step 10: Step 9
Finally paint the tree, cover the base with fabric/carpet, and hang kitty toys!
Step 11: Step 10
Make sure the tree is structurally stable and enjoy!
