1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / MDF bed for my coonies! on: October 10, 2008 07:34:00 AM
A few years agoo I designed several beds for my coonies. I made them out of MDF of 1 thick.They are 16 X 20 inches and stand some 4 inches from the ground.
The first design was a 'block of cheese" bed with a mouse.

Her with my lovely boy Jack in it. The bed is now in the posession of my daughter who's cat Coco sleeps in it every day.

Here you can see it without a cat.
I had the MDF cut in the store in square and rectangler pieces and made the holes and cut-outs later at home.
I painted it in a kind of dabbing technique and lackered it several times aftherwards with a good clear lacquer since MDF is prown to attacting water.
I will show some other beds another time.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Recycling Making a kitty scratspolefrom old stuff on: September 16, 2008 09:42:24 AM

You need
1 old tv table with a double shelf
2 square garden poles
Some old bookshelfs
some carpet squares
a few corner irons and shelf holders
a few srews

Measure the garden poles ( 60 high)
Cut two squares out of the top shelf of the tables of the same size as the garden poles
Put the poles trough the hole and fix them to the second shelf with some corner irons
Then cut a big shelf that overlaps the two garden poles and that is at least 12wide. Fix to the pools with long shelf holders.
In between the two poles is another smaller shelf
Left and right their is another shelf. Fix them very firm to the poles with long screws and long shelfholders. You best use two shelfholders everywhere to be sure that the shelfs are stable. For the big plank on top you use four.
Finish of the scratchpole with carpet tiles.Put them on the shelfs but double sided masking tape.
My scratchpole is in the mean time 5 years old and in still in perfect condition. You can also use it outside but then I advice to put faux grass on the shelfs and staining the wood to protect against the rain.
