Keepin my eye on this thread.
I'm sure I will be adding on to my cat stairs sometime and like looking at ideas.
I'll try to fins a picture of my cat's "stairway to Heaven":

Not a great picture- too far away, but the cats love to run up and down the stairs and sleep up on the perch

I know you say you want to make one, but if you ever consider buying one instead, I can comment on that one you posted there. That looks like an Armarkat. I just purchased a very similar one for my cats earlier this year and I (and they) absolutely love it. It's a very sturdy tree with a lot of great multi-level platforms and boxes. They spend so much time sleeping on and climbing all over that thing. I was able to get it on sale, but it still goes for a surprisingly good price considering how huge it is (over 6' at least).

There are some photos of my guys with the tree here: Their very own Amarkat!

What type of materials did you use for that?

My only worry would be that my dog would try to climb them... lol.
