Heat Register Reroute

I am in the process of completing my kitchen which I tore down to the studs and subflooring. I reconfigured the cabinetry and now I need to go under a cabinet and put the register on the front of the cabinet. It is a 12x4.

I've been to four hardware stores and none of them carry a 90 degree angle piece or additional pieces of the rectangular sheet metal (assemble two pieces together) to reach the front of the cabinet in 12x4 size. All I can find is 10x4.

So, I bought 10x4 with a 6 inch diameter on the other end that already has a 90 degree plus additional sheet metal to reach the front of the cabinet. Should I be going this route or does anyone have suggestions about finding 12x4? I'm in the Seattle area so we have most every store around.

use the 10x4 as the 6" hole is what really determines the airflow. you won't notice any difference.
