DIY Cat Scratching Post
Thought of a creative way to build an inexpensive cat scratching post for the cutest cat in the world.
It wasn't too hard to put together so here is what I did, and maybe you can be inspired to make on too! Here are the basic steps. Watch the video at the end to see the whole process.
The post has a wood base which I sawed to size. It's a square shape with a small circle in the middle for the hard plastic pipe to be placed in.
With the square wooden base ready the next step is to cover it.
Cut a rug in half. It will be used to cover the base.
Staple it around the base using a staple gun and folding over the rug around the edges.
A circle needs to be cut around the rug in the middle where the whole in the wood is. The cardboard post needs to be inserted here.
The cardboard post needs to be inserted here.
Drill the post to the base. Make sure it is steady and secure.
Take out wood glue because we are ready to start wrapping the twine around the post for the scratching.
Fully wrap it around, starting from the top and keep gluing it in place.
Create a lid for the post using the rug.
Your cat now has a new cat scratching post.
