Make a scratching post to keep kitty’s claws busy.
You will need • 400mm x 300m plywood (18mm thick) • coarse carpet (400mm x 300mm) • 300mm curtain rod (30mm thick) • 40mm PVC pipe: 1 x 400mm piece 1 x 250mm piece 1 x elbow • coarse rope • Alcolin Contact Adhesive • Alcolin PVC Weld • Alcolin Fix-All • two 6mm x 40mm screws • two 8mm x 16mm screws • screwdriver
1 Apply Alcolin Contact Adhesive to the wood and carpet and allow to become touch-dry; attach the carpet to the wood. 2 Drill pilot holes and screw the curtain rod to the base from underneath with the 6mm x 40mm screws. 3 Using Alcolin PVC Weld, join the two pipes with the elbow in-between. 4 Place the pipe over the curtain rod and secure with the 8mm x 16mm screws. 5 Apply Alcolin Fix-All to the upright PVC pipe, then wrap the rope around the pipe. Secure the ends of the rope with masking tape until the Fix-All is dry. Drill a hole in the end of the short pipe on which to hang a toy.
