Oh My!! I need one of these.  Those silly trees are crazy expensive at the store and you have constructed one with great style!  Cheesy

Well, I haven't been able to get any video, but yes, it's sturdy enough for her to use. We basically glued the top cushion to the scratching post cylinder with silicone gel. Then again, she is only about 5.5 lbs, so I don't know if it's steady enough for heavier cats. I would guess it would be fine for any cat as long as you always pick it up by the base and don't stress the glue.

Also, thank you so much to everyone for the compliments! It was a fun project and it makes me really happy to see my cat so happy. She actually enjoys the hideaway most and so doesn't bounce around a lot on the tiers, but that's just her personality.

This is a great idea. I would love to try this. It's amazing how you can make something similar to what's in the stores for only $10 dollars. The one's I've seen are SOO expensive! Great job.
