The wire mesh and cage frame will be build to fit it. Cut 16 equal size piece of untreated pine wood. Cut their length to 18 inches and take 2 pieces of the cut pine and screw them together with one edge flat side the other as a butt joint. Repeat this with the all other 6 piece of wood. You should end up with 8 long l shaped corner piece.
Bottom of the frame: use the 4 leftover 18 inch l shaped piece and 4 more braces to make the bottom. With the one open side facing you, slide the litter tray into the cage and cut a piece of mesh that reaches below the tray. Before attaching the fourth side, cut a little door from the mesh and use the wire hinges to attach it back when it comes from. Cut any extra edges with wire cutter to leave smooth and flat edge. Attach the clasp so that the door will stay secure and locked.
Fill the litter tray with right comfort bedding for your little chinchilla and place bowls and food inside. Add some chinchilla cage accessories to make it more attractive.
