There are almost innumerable shapes, colors, styles, height and additions. They may have built in swinging platforms, hanging ropes or other toys, stairs, tunnels and the number of 'trunks' and 'limbs' can vary widely. Obviously, the more cats you have the more places on your tree you will want. (Or you may opt for multiple trees.) Colors can be chosen to offset or compliment your color scheme; and shapes can even include looking like an actual tree or the castle at Camelot.
Either option works well. And allows you the flexibility to replace the carpet when it wears out or you want to change the look. Peel the backing off the double sided tape and affix your carpet square to the base. Try to align the edge of the carpet square flush with the edge of your plywood base. DIY scratch carpet - Working from the bottom of the base, drive the two wood screws through the pilot holes so they just poke through the carpet on the other side.
Optional - Vertically staple one end of your sisal rope to the bottom of your log. Begin to wrap the rope as tightly as possible around the log until you get around 6 inches from the top of the log. Vertically staple that end and trim any remaining rope. Make sure you staple vertically to prevent your cat from catching claws on the staples.
Scratching - All cat tree houses come with scratching posts that double as the columns that hold the various platforms. Some have curvy slide-like scratching surfaces or scratching ramps. Most scratching surfaces are covered in sisal, however, some are covered in carpet. Whatever the size or shape of the scratching surfaces, cats love them and you'll love that your furniture is not the recipient of said scratching.
