Fabricating a copper range hood

Posted by r-squared (My Page) on

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.
