This is for a cat tree, the biggest platform would be an almost 2’ by 4’ piece of half inch osb and the biggest possible cat on it would be 20 pounds at the most.

I have a feeling that separate, the post pieces would have very weak points, but once assembled it’ll be solid wood, basically.

I have also learned about “drawboring” since I have been on this site, and I think maybe my “screw through the whole thing” design might have some of the benefits of a real drawbored joint. Am I just being silly?
