Couple more questions about it. First, how did you mount the 1/2'' plywood "hood" to the 2x6 base and top? It's hard to tell in the pics. Second, how do you plan on mounting it, looks like you mounted some rings to the 2x6? Finally, any chance you would be willing to disclose the dimensions on the 1/2" in plywood (i.e. the width at the bottom and top)?
I'm more then happy to share, That's how I was inspired to build.
Mounting was done by using 1.25 brads, then filling the gaps with wood glue. I then used half inch 1/4 round that I used my router with a 45 degrees bit to remove the inside 90 degree so it ended up looking like a small strip of crown molding and the used 5/8 brads to tack it top to bottom. See picture. The hood is not very heavy.
