This comes from a guy who runs a cat furniture company: I've made & sold literally tens of thousands of cat scratching posts and cat trees (right here in the USA, by the way). As you can imagine, my own two cats have been very instrumental in helping me develop my skills. You can find a lot of useful tips on this topic - DIY scratching posts - if you just do a search on "Tips from a Cat Man" or "flerper eBay". I've been here at this important forum over the years, and appreciate the service it does for those who need to economize. I hope you will find my articles useful for saving a little money on this essential cat gear!
