Default Copper vent

I wish I knew how to post multiple pictures at once. Here was the first step in making a copper exhaust vent. I used a left over piece from a kitchen hood. I used the water to get the correct plane for my cut lines. Lightly spray painted the pipe black. The paint then became my cut line. Just sanded the pipe down after the cut was made.

Here is a pic of the back half of the vent. I wasn't really happy with how the screen turned out. I wove and soldered 12 gauge copper wire and soldered them. This was my third go at the screen. By this point it was 9:00 pm and I gave up. I guess 3 strikes and I'm out.

Default Final product

Sorry this picture uploaded sideways. This is the end result. I installed this on a historic Wirtz property off melrose and lake shore drive.
