Range hood installation, termionating at ceiling


I am installing a Bosch slimline range hood. It has two screws that it hangs from on the wall. The vent (flue pipe) is turned 90 degrees into an existing roof vent between studs.

There is a dress cover that extends from the top of the range hood to the ceiling and hides the 6 inch flue pipe. It consists of two pieces of stainless and you can buy extenders for taller ceilings.
My problem is that the hood is on a side wall of a cathedral ceiling, so where the stainless cover reaches the ceiling, it either has to be cut on an angle from left to right or some sort of a soffit built into the ceiling to make the ceiling flat where the cover meets it.

Which is the correct way to do this? If cutting the dress cover is the correct way to do it, what do you use to cut stainless and keep the edges from looking ragged?

Does anyone have pictures of a similar install?

My choice would be a small soffit!

The soffit or bulkhead idea may work or maybe a local metal shop could do the cutting if you laid / marked it out for them.
