New cat structure

I had been bugging my husband for months to make our cats a new climbing/scratching/hangout structure and it's finally done! It's basically a plywood box with a cedar post and a threaded steel rod. The box has a shelf inside, and the outside wall has hinges so it can open for cleaning. We stained it a black wood stain - LOVE! We went to The Home Depot looking for carpet tiles to find out they haven't carried them in 2 years, but some carpet underpadding caught our eye so we decided to use that instead - it's got a funky speckled pattern and is nice and cushiony. I hope it becomes their favourite hangout so they stay off my furniture. :) (I have to stain the post you can see inside the box - it stands out too much unstained) 

*** A big thanks to The Home Depot for sending me a $50 gift card that helped pay for this little project!

For the record, Felix (the grey one) is BY FAR the fattest of them all at 23 lbs. :)

I truly love your "big boy", but sadly that shot from above is not exactly flattering. ; ) Cool structure and it looks like it's already popular.

The brown hutch/cabinet beside the cat structure is sooo beautiful. Can you tell me more about that item please?
