Not every project has to be complicated. This is a re-do of a cat climber we made about 20 years ago when we couldn’t afford to buy one and all the tools I had were hand-tools except for a skill saw! I guess it was worth $30 in materials and the day we spent building it to have lasted this long. This time the carpet cost about the same as all the materials the first time! Kind of strange to go back and re-do an old project. All the warts were there but none that a table saw with an Incra slide couldn’t fix… ;0) (sorry for the washed out pics)

My cats would go crazy for that, hopefully they didn’t see me looking at that, I might get the stink eye. A lot of my projects aren’t complicated and you save a ton of money over buying in the store.

Good job Jack and I’m not going to let my cat see this. She already wants a new one.

Yes I do. Got it at a native american fireworks stand in NM back in 1980 had it framed and hung it up. It was a freebee (course I bought a bunch of stuff too).
