Here’s a fun project that my husband and I have been working on. These are CatCabs, unique handmade cat hideaways inspired by custom speaker cabinets. You see, my husband Mark is a professional luthier. In addition to building and repairing guitars, he also creates beautiful, handmade speaker cabinets for guitar players. Sometimes cats crawl inside the speaker cabinets, which gave us an idea.

Mark carefully handcrafts each CatCab, finishing them with a multi-step process and sealing them with water-based polyurethane for easy cleaning. Kate makes comfy cushions using stylish fabrics that coordinate with each CatCab. We use the same sturdy hardware that’s on regular speaker cabinets for the CatCabs: metal corners, non-slip feet and a handle on top for picking them up and moving them around.

Our CatCabs are made in small batches and sold exclusively at Each CatCab is unique so finishes may vary slightly from photos. CatCabs come with a free matching ModKicker cat toy. Check back often for new finishes and colors, we’ll be adding more as we make them.
