That's right. 40 P3 sheets of the same shape, with 6 Per Sheet. Cut from 6.7mm corrugated cardboard. Dream BIG. Dream about a swirling ledge of cardboard that inspires both people and cats.

No pole included, each piece has a hole at center for mounting on something with a 1-5/8" outer diameter. PVC is possibly your best bet, as that's what I use.

Drop your first piece onto the pole and then add a bit of glue to the top and around the center. Drop your next piece around the pole, and repeat. Repeat until you are out of parts. You'll probably want to go in stages, letting glue dry between them. Have a good plan for the length of pole and how you want to mount it. I run mine to the ceiling and support it with blocks having drilled holes.

When I set these on a pole and glue them together, I use a regular angular variation of about 3 degrees, which is easy to eye. Don't worry, building these is not hard, but keep in mind it becomes a super-strong monolithic block of cardboard when done, and has some weight.

Enough parts here to make one about 5.5' high. I model each piece as 7mm to account for some glue, and that's conservative.

Contact me and we can ship anywhere. I just need to get a new quote for you. Have fun!
