Dressing Up Copper Hood

This kitchen I did for a married couple who wanted two different things as far as the Hood design was concerned. The husband wanted a copper Hood and the wife wanted a wood Hood. To save there marriage and the job I came up with this. I know I didn't invent this idea but they both loved the outcome.

I scribed the bead board to the Hood and cut it flush to the end of the Hood and hung pilasters and wall Cabinets against it to close it in. The copper Hood had a ledge that pertruded about an inch at the bottom. After carving a long enough piece of molding I mitered the two returns and then Just put a cleat at top of molding and basically hung it on ledge of Hood and screwed the two returns from behind breadboard. Crowned it out to tie it all together

LOL I didn't even see the circle and arrow until now. I want to know how he added that . The frog is a metal sculpture the customer had sitting on the peninsula

You know what they usually say about compromise "nobody wins" but you didn't have any choice in that case. Good for you, kept peace in the valley and you made a few bucks. bill
BTW, Where are you finding these photos? You are so much better at woodworking than behind the camera.... Anything we can assist you with?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Unfortunately someone thought they needed my laptop more than me and I lost all my pictures so most of the pictures I have posted are from Pictures of a picture from my album

I'm going to come back and look at this picture tomorrow. When I'm not drinking. But from what I can see it looks real nice.
