Her animals are tree-dwellers.

Stuffed animals have a tidy home in this storage tree, built from scrap pieces of plywood and pine by Don Ostendorf of Prescott, Arizona.

Cut with a saber saw and held together with wood glue and stove bolts, the 1/4-inch plywood tree has a central trunk and overlapping pieces that create freeform branches. The shelves and triangular supports are 1-by-6 pine (see drawing).

Woodscrews attach the central piece to a wall stud; expansion bolts secure branches to the gypsum board wall. Plastic rings sewn onto some of the animals let them dangle from cup hooks in shelf bottoms. Other animals hang on 1/4-inch-dowel pegs glued into angled holes drilled in the plywood. The whole assembly is painted brown and forest green.
