Used the drill press to drill the strap but had to hand drill the over 250 holes in the 10 ga sheet metal body.

Mady using logging cain to "texture" the sheet metal body.

Masking the stap off cause the customer decided they wanted the hood chemically copper plated.

Sweet design and execution. Did you hot rivet all those 250 connections?

Hopefully this isn't for a commercial kitchen where you would have to clutter it up with various grease filters and fire suppression systems.  Are you going to give them a duct collar at the top to make the exhaust system connection?

I see your helper is most distressing. :rolleyes: 

Are there provisions for lighting and or pot utensil hangers in it?

I did not hot rivet. It would have added a lot of labor and they are for the most part decrative so I just weld the back side. The collar was added to the back side.

There were lights added and the pot/utensil rack was separate.
