For the lower and upper stand we need a chipboard. The lower base can be made 40x40 cm, and the upper 30x20 cm. Using an electric jigsaw, cut exactly the required dimensions. So that the angle was exactly 90 degrees, you can use a square.

Now you need to cover the bottom and the top with fabric.Carpet is best suited for this, as it will be convenient for a cat to sharpen claws about it. In addition, this fabric has a high density and it is more durable. For the upper part, you can use a fabric that is used to cover the furniture. To do this, cut the desired size of the fabric, taking into account that it can be tucked under the bottom, and secure from the bottom with staples or nails. As for the carpet, it can be cut exactly to the size of the lower base 40x40 cm, and attach the top. For covering the bottom of the fabric should not use brackets, as they can damage the cat's claws. It is better to use small nails, or glue.

When the lower and upper parts are ready and covered with a cloth, you can begin to make a pipe about which the cat will sharpen claws. The height of the pipe can be made about one meter. Even if you have a small kitten, you should not make a claw scratcher too low, as it will grow, and it will be small for him.Usually, cats like to sharpen claws up to their full height, and they can reach 70 cm in them. For these purposes, you can use an ordinary cardboard tube, which is used for rolled materials, for example, for linoleum. You can simply contact the store where they sell such materials, and ask for this pipe. Usually they are disposed of and so, so you probably will not be denied. Cutting the desired size of the pipe, and from above and below it is necessary to fix a piece of wooden beam. After that, you can fasten the top and bottom parts, connecting it with the pipe above and below. Before tightening the screws, it is better to drill the holes, so that the bars do not give a crack.
