Building the housing for the fan

I figured the easiest way to fit the square fan to the round tube would be with plywood.  I am sandwiching the fan in between several layers, with caulk in between each layer to seal out air.

Here are the four sections I plan to use.  I first cut out the holes with a saber saw, then I cut the four pieces apart.  It's easier to saw the holes out when you can clamp them to something.

And here it is nearly assembled.
