custom SS liner for hood
Moving along... now getting down to the nitty gritty...
I have a quick and little question:
I am having a custom (and not fancy) petite hood built. I am using a power pack vent insert. (Still undecided on brand but in the 11 in deep/ 28 wide range.) I'd like to have a SS liner cut for the rest of the space not filled by the power pack itself. I mentioned this to my cabinet maker in a "I am delegating this to you. Here's a photo of what I want it to look like" way. He seemed absolutely thrown off and told me he would deliver the hood with a wooden bottom (it is a mantle cabinet type style) with a hole cut out for the power pack and I was then on my own to figure out the rest.
Has anyone here had a SS liner cut? Do I cut a paper template and go in search of some industrial steel folks? How do I attach it once I get home again? It seems to me like something you'd want cut and in place before the cabinet is finished to help minimize the risk of the steel scratching the finish. Am I over thinking it?
