Cut your plywood base to the desired dimension. We’re using an 18-inch square carpet tile for this scratcher. Use the sand paper to smooth any rough edges. DIY scratch base saw. Using your straight edge and pencil, draw a line from corner to corner on the plywood. Repeat from the opposite corners. They will intersect in the center. Next, mark two screw locations based on the diameter of your log. Since ours was 5 inches thick, we marked our holes 3 inches apart to leave some room between the screw and the outer edge of the log.
A good scratching post must be stable so that so that it won't topple over, and it should be a few inches taller than the cat. The cat should be able stand and stretch upright against the scratch post, which should be covered with rough material that has a vertical texture. Placing the post in a corner of the room where the cat likes, and sprinkling some catnip on will be even more attractive to the cat. Cats go crazy when they smell catnip. Another and even better location would be to place the scratching post where the cat originally started scratching your carpet or furnishing.
