Fabricating a copper range hood

r-squaredJuly 14, 2007

I'm toying with the idea of fabricating my own copper range hood. I'll say up-front that I have no (zero-zilch-none) metalworking experience. I am a fairly skilled woodworker, for whatever that's worth, and I'd say i have good mechanical ability and a high capacity to learn.

Having said all of that, I admit again that I have no idea where to start, but I view this as an opportunity to expand my skills.

So, am i out of my mind? Please let me know if I'm nuts to tackle this. If not, please point me in the right direction (tips / advice / resources).

And yes, my wife thinks I'm nuts.

Thanks!

Rob

On the kitchen forum, allison0704 fabricated a hood out of copper sheeting. See the link below for a picture.
