Here is a great link to cage plans:  If you scroll down to the bottom you will find the link to the detailed plan for that cage.

Untreated pine wood is a great choice for the frame of the cage.  If you want a solid back wall Melamine Coated Pressboard is ok.  You just have to be sure the chinchilla can't get to any edges to chew it.
