Cat Tree


This scratching post was made from a fallen tree on Martha's property. It's 18 inches tall, but you can make yours any size.


  • Tree saw
  • Trunk of branched wood
  • 1 1/2-inch-thick piece of wood
  • Four 3-inch wood screws
  • Drill


  1. Step 1

    Use a tree saw to cut the trunk of a sturdy piece of branched wood so that it forms a flat surface.

  2. Step 2

    On a 1 1/2-inch-thick piece of wood that is wide enough to provide a stable base (this one is about 15 inches across), draw intersecting lines. On the base, mark trunk's footprint at approximate center. Mark placement of four 3-inch wood screws.

  3. Step 3

    Drill pieces together.

  4. Step 4

    Remove bark from the base if desired.
