At aquaticeco.com they have epoxy paint that is used for fish ponds and such. It is water-proof! Paint the bottom of each enclosure with that (maybe about an inch or two up each side), and you will be good to go. Although it seems expensive, it is not way too much more than polyurethanes these days.

Not sure if it will stick to previously finished wood. Better ask first. I have seen this stuff used in a snake cage as described above, it was eons better than store-bought polyurethanes. And once cured, zero odor.

I would ask them about it first. Like I said, your wood unit looks like it has a finish on it, so check first.
