I'm making some radiator covers out of 1/2" pine boards. Plan is to
rout 1 inch vents in the top and have an open front covered with
decorative perforated sheet metal.
The question is: Should I do anything to the wood to protect it from
the heat generated by the radiators? I was thinking of lining the
whole inside with with thick tin foil to reflect heat and force is out
the top vents.
Putting foil in the back may help, bit in the front will do little or
nothing. If you have a very open front, you will get plenty of heat out.
I've been in many houses wit wood covers and no slots in top, just a grill
in the front.
