Apologies that you didn't receive a reply to your post in my absense from Workshop, but I'm sure community members would love to help if they can. Let me tag a fellow cat lover in @Chrissie35 as well as some clever woodworkers in @Poppop, @Brad, @r23on and @woodalwaysworks to see if they have some ideas for you.
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the community. We're pleased to have you join us and look forward to reading more about your projects and plans, particularly seeing how this one progresses. Feel free to post anytime you need a hand with a project around the house and garden.
