This is the most recent project I’ve completed for my kitchen. Needed something to give it that gourmet look. Found some sheets of copper for cheap on Craigslist a year ago. I made the frame for the hood out of scrap 2×4,s that i milled down. Took some Luann board and cut out each face and used that as a template to cut out the copper. Than attached the copper to the Luann board to Make it more rigid. The copper I aged by soaking it In “liver of sulfur”. It smells as bad as it sounds. The rest is just milling up some white oak I had and doing some woodworking.

That looks great.

I would make just one observation. We hava hood made of stainless steel with a glass skirt and I notice that in spite of the fact my cook (wife) does very little frying there is always a build up of oil like dirt on the surface that needs cleaning every few weeks. So I would just say that you might make sure you have a finish on the wood that is durable and easy to clean.

That looks Great.

I have one observation. We have a stainless steel hood with a glass skirt and I notice that it although my cook (wife) does very little frying there is still a build up of oil like dirt on it that has to be cleaned every couple of weeks. So, I based on that I would suggest you make sure you have a durable finish on it that is easy to clean. Of course it won’t show as much as it does on the glass skirt we have so that is an advantage on the house keeping side.
