Your cat will love this easy-to make contemporary cat tree.
You will need:
One sheet of 16mm-thick mdf cut into:
Paint brush, skill saw, jig saw, screwdriver and 30mm screws, sandpaper, filler and small broad knife, 4 L-brackets and screws.
Step 1: Cut out the pieces for the box or have your supplier cut them for you. Assemble the boxes using 30mm screws.
Step 2: Cut out 220mm squares for the entry and exit holes using a jig saw. Ours are set into the corner, 40mm from the edges. Lightly sand the edges of the holes.
Step 3: Fill all of the screw holes, then undercoat the boxes using Resene Quick Dry primer undercoat.
Step 4: Apply topcoats using Resene colours of your choice.
To finish: Using the L-brackets, fix the bottom box onto the wall. Screw the middle box to the bottom one, setting it about 150mm off the wall, then measure and fix the L-brackets to the wall for the top box.
