dryer vent

My current dryer vent is through floor and into my crawl space. How do I make a new vent through a cabinet and through outside wall?

When venting a dryer you want to try to keep the run as straight as possible and use as much solid duct as possible.  You'll need to use some flexible duct at the back of the dryer so you can get it out to make your connections.  Always use flexible metal duct, never the plastic stuff.  You'll also need a vent hood and a 4.25" hole saw.  Seal all connections with foil tape (contrary to the name, duct tape isn't used for ducts).  Seal house penetrations with silicone caulk.
