    I'm building a cat tree made of small, pre built wooden crates and I'd like to be able to rearrange them on occasion which is why I don't want to permanently fasten them with screws. I thought of traditional wood clamps but they're too bulky, you guys have any suggestions on how to clamp them securely together?

    Yeah the zip ties should get it done:D
    The tape would work if there wasn't a crazed cat bopping over and under them. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Metal insert and bolt through it. T-Nuts might be a good choice here. We use them with rock climbing holds all the time. Just pull the hold and move it to a new hole when you want to change it.

    Love the t nuts idea! They would give the structure a lot of stability. Thanks.
