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.

Very cool, at first I thought it was a tv stand, but that is so much more useful.

Awesome!  Looks like they love it!  You're so brave to put it next to possibly breakable things...
