How it looked in the beginning. The London Plane was a 2.5m slab just over 80cm wide (at some points) for an amazing £84. I cut the shape out of a hard bit of plastic first as a template to find the best part of the slab to use. This was an offcut that I travelled 5 hours to pick. It looked the saddest piece in a vast timber yard; I just had to take it home! Cat Shelves, Shelf, Wooden Cat, 5 Hours, Plane, Template, Yard, Plastic, Shapes

This was the underside of the knuckle joint, very weak and some of the loose bark had to be secured in place by wood glue before I could risk sanding it Cat Shelves, Shelf, Wooden Cat, Wood Glue, Design, Shelves, Design Comics, Shelving

Used a Dremel 3000 sanding head to do the edges as there was surface, blackened water damage. It was also useful to remove any sharp edges Cat Shelves, Shelf, Dremel 3000, Wooden Cat, Water Damage, Restoration, Surface, Fire, Shelves

This was the Oak before it was waxed/oiled. I used a wire brush on the edges of the bark to remove the white mould Cat Shelves, Shelf, Wooden Cat, Wire Brushes, Wax, Design, Shelves, Design Comics

All parts of the stand, sanded and waxed/oiled. A 3m+ piece of oak made the 3 legs for an amazing £30! The base is a tree slice I bought off eBay that's typically used for wedding cakes/buffets etc. Cat Shelves, Shelf, Tree Slices, Wooden Cat, Buffets, Stepping Stones, Wedding Cakes, Base, Legs

This is the underside of the London Plane shelf. After 4 days of sanding it's beauty was revealed and the Osmo Polyx®-Oil in clear satin brought out its rich, deep and varied colour tone Cat Shelves, Shelf, Wooden Cat, Pet Beds, Pets, Plane, Curves, Bedding, Surface

The topside had a lot more pits and cracks, but it was to be covered with pet bedding anyway. It curves across the surface and slightly downwards at the front so it was the best side for the top of the shelf

As the knuckle joint was quite weak and with very loose bark, clear epoxy resin strengthened it for the cats to jump on Cat Shelves, Shelf, Clear Epoxy Resin, Wooden Cat, Cats, Gatos, Shelves, Shelving, Kitty
