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.
In nature, cats scratch on trees to stretch their bodies and maintain their claws. If left without a similar outlet in your home, you may have noticed your cat replicating this behavior on your furniture or drapes. As we get ready for Maker Faire in New York City, September 21-22, 2013, we’ve noticed there are an increasing number of ideas online for things like scratching surfaces you can make for cat. You can find all sorts of scratchers on the market made from corrugated cardboard or wrapped in sisal. But scratch posts can be fun to make and can be customized to match your décor.
