Normally I prefer metal floor vents, but the size of our bathroom floor register was non-standard. Another problem was that the bathroom would get too hot if the old vent was left open. This simple vent cover made from 3/4” quarter sawn red oak solves both problems. The eight holes in the center provide the right amount of airflow, while the smaller walnut pegs are purely decorative.

When I saw it i wondered how the heat got through it? Looks like you have the perfect solution.

nice floor register with a built in damper, I think you should get a patent on it lol. I’m in the Hvac trade and never seen that one before.
