I have not seen a step by step thread on this either
Below is how I built my canopy. It's not really a step by step instruction, but it might give you a few ideas

Here is one that I did. It works best on smaller tanks.

Here is a very detail diy canopy.
The one that I built myself is very similar to this one.
I just finished this yesterday. I kinda combined the two ideas above. I built a skeleton frame and covered it with thin lauran wood. I only used one set of hinges to open the hood. However, to perform major maintenance or clean the filter I have to take the canopy off.

Here is a really easy diy canopy.
Here is a canopy I created a long time ago. I wouldn't recommend this one though.
