Another toy I made for the lady of the house: A self-scratching/brushing appliance made from scrap wood and a simple hand washing brush. She’s not yet really familiar, but at least all the way curious about it 🙂Motörhead’s “Cat Scratch Fever” – for your listening pleasure!
Just hot-glue some of those inside toilet paper cardboard rolls into a carton box, randomly drop in some favourite cat treats and there you go! No cost, no fuzz and much fun!
(Unless she’s just lazy and more or less intelligent enough to just topple the whole thing over in order to get her paws on all the delicious good stuff 🙂 ).
See the video below for instructions. It’s PostapocalypticGarage’s YouTube Channel. He’s a german, but he presents his videos in english.
So, finally, a friendly professional person installed the door to the shop for me. I have observed this work many times, but I don’t dare to do it on my own. It requires absolute accuracy, precision and, last but not least, knowledge about what you’re doing.
First, one half of the doorframe is glued and screwed together and inserted into the door-hole. After levelling everything carefully with a spirit level, it is fixed in the correct position with several wedges and the hollows are filled with construction foam.
To ensure the correct position of every part of the frame, the whole construction is fixed with tension rods until the foam has cured and hardened. Next, the other half of the Frame will be installed (foam, glue and screws) and the door is ready.

We got wooden flooring in the northern germany refuge recently, and I had to install the baseboards (the mouldings covering the joint of the walls and the adjoining floor) over the last days. Since it’s an older house and not every corner is a perfect ninety-degree-angle, I had to rely on some measuring and precise cutting to make the baseboard joints nice and flush.
I started tearing down the old and worn brick and stone grill in the northern germany refuge today. I didn’t expect it to be that sturdy – never judge a book by it’s cover! Whoever built this monster, he really knew what he was doing!

I’m (somewhat) social too!
