Shanty 2 Chic created their very own Farmhouse Vent Hood with just some basic materials and $150, and so can you. Check out this easy to follow tutorial from Ryobitools.

1. Build the top box first. Attach the sides of the box to the top and bottom cleats using 1.25” Spax or wood screws and wood glue.
2. Now build the middle frame. The easiest way to cut the front plywood piece is to draw it out by these measurements, and use a jigsaw to make the cuts. Attach the side pieces to both cleat pieces using wood glue and 1.25” Spax or wood screws. Then, attach the large front pieces also using wood glue and screws.
3. To build the bottom frame, start by building two sides. You want to make sure you know the exact opening of the vent assembly you plan to use. You can also install just a light assembly if you don’t want the vent. This opening you are building needs to match those measurements exactly.
4. The next step is to attach the back cleat board to the two sides using wood glue and 1.25” Spax or wood screws. This is the board you will attach to the wall when hanging it up.
5. Attach the front face board to the side pieces using wood glue and screws. At this point, the opening you see should be the measurement of the exact opening you need for your assembly.
7. The final step is attaching the vent to the wall.
