The easiest thing I can imagine is making them out of sheet aluminum.

Bigbluesaw.com can waterjet cut aluminum sheet and make the array of vent
holes, then "we" bend the three sides on a brake, then wood grain contact
paper for the side surface.  I have a sheet metal brake, or you could
hire a sheet metal shop to do that work.
