You have several options for constructing a new hood. The biggest issue is whether your tank will have live plants. The addition of live plants requires that you consider the type of lighting, type of relfectors, etc. before you make your plans for the hood. If you aren't going to have live plants, then a simple wood box can work well, although unless you already have the wood, paint, etc., it's probably just as cheap to buy a standard fluorescent hood. If you could be more specific about your tank I could be more specific about how to build a hood for your set up.
