    In response to @Silverflash22 and @chinchillaluver13, you should use very fine sandpaper all around the inside to take the lacquer off and make it safe for Chinchillas :)

    Hey man I own a chinchilla and made a little shelf and I was super interested in this! But I don't think it's the best idea... The original wood on the dresser is coated something and or could be a harmful wood to chins. And other animals! I just have safety concerns they love to chew everything!
