Painted Hood

This range hood is made from Maple lumber and Birch plywood. It is approximately 60” wide X 24” deep X 66” tall. It has 2 pullout spice racks on each side. All of the onlays, corbels, and sea shell were carved by a carver in our shop. The hood liner for this hood is a ventless hood. Therefore I had to cut vents into the top part of the mantel. If you look closely in the second picture you can see these vents. The applied molding was made in our shop.

The hood was painted and glazed and then a lacquer finish over that. The doors were not dry when this hood was delivered so I did not get a picture after they were installed on site.

I’d appreciate any and all critiques good or bad.

Another great project! It’s obvious how much pride you guys take in your work.

Who could say anything bad about your work, it’s amazing. I would love to see the finished kitchens, they have to be beautiful.

great job on this hood, i build a lot of these myself and can see you definiitly know your stuff, always great to see other carpenters approaches to similar projects, i love how you guys carve your corbels and onlays in house, we order ours in( for time reasons usually), anyway, nice piece, keep up the good work
