Good work on this.

From a design perspective I think it would look better if the appearance from the front was consistent in regards to the pieces running vertically.

You have the ends that 1"(?) showing on from the front view, and the 2 uprights that are 3"(?). IMO it would look better to have all of the front pieces the same width, and the end frames tucked under the front on the ends.

In addition the 3 areas of tiles need to be the same width instead of wider in the middle, and narrow at the sides.

Not being critical, and when it is painted you likely wont notice it, but that is the way I would have built it.

I can appreciate the design critique. In part the tin tiles are spaced the way they are due to the materials I had on hand. Originally I was going to have 3 even spaced sections, but I did not have enough tiles left over from the ceiling project to do it, so I reset the spacing to what you see and Im happy with it. As far as the side/front corner members for the front frame to have the same width, I guess my taste is a little more minimalist.

Originally the panels were going to be beadboard. But I had the tiles and gave it a go.

Heres after paint and most assembly. There are 2 frame members that Im leaving out till I have the sheetmetal lining completed.




And here is the start of the sheetmetal liner, and the lighting. The rail the lights are mounted to is removable for future wire access if needed.

The piece of sheetmetal liner for the back will be installed after the hood is mounted in place.

Completely understand, and was not disrespecting your work, just giving design thoughts. Your satisfaction with the piece is the ultimate approval.

Minimalist taste have a completely different design if that is what you are shooting for though:

"Minimalist architecture involves the use of reductive design elements, without ornamentation or decoration,"

Looks really good with the paint on it.

There is no reason that you must put the fan motor just above the stove vent. You can put the fan motor at the other end of the duct near the exhaust. Depending on the run length and other conditions, it can significantly reduce the vent noise above the stove. In some cases, you don't hear the fan and motor at all, just the wind noise of the air flow into the vent.

Perhaps minimalist is the wrong word. Im not an architect, designer, or a student of either, so Im a bit ignorant to the lingo. Im just a guy that likes to make things. My meaning of minimalist was that I wanted to use the minimum amount of material at the corner to achieve the purposes of that frame member. Mainly for weight reduction. I suppose I could have oriented that frame member rotated 90 degrees, but they would not have been as strong.

Heres an approximation of how its gonna look in place. Was doing a test fit prior to finishing the internals.



Heres the internal filter rack about done. On the left side, there is a plate not shown in the picture that is removable to hold the bottoms of the filters and block the portion the filters don’t cover. The hole on the right is for electric.



Here is the adapter mounted for the duct that will go up to the attic. I think Im gonna leave it galvanized, and not paint it, but my better half will have the final say on that.



Hope to have it mounted tomorrow, but Im still grouting the backsplash.

So here it is mounted, wired, ducted,
and operational.




This is the business end up in the attic.



Hard to tell with the insulation in place, but the 10x10 duct comes straight up from the hood on the right, then its a 7” reducing take off to 6” rigid duct, and 2” flex duct the the inlet of the fan. Then 6” rigid duct to the roof termination on the left.
