Question how to remove cover over fluorescent fixture

This must be elementary, but...
we need to replace the fluorescent tubes in our ceiling fixture, and we can't figure out how to remove the wood cover.
We can't find the installation information, and put it up several years ago, so we don't remember how it went up.
The unit has a wood frame and the diffuser is held in place with a wood grate.
Thanks for any help.

Look for a small screw or screws on the ends of the fixture. They go through the wooden frame into the base. Be careful, when the screws are removed the frame is free to come down. Hope this helps.

Smile thank you!

You're right! There was a screw on one end. We finally saw it when we shined a flashlight on the end of the unit.
Project completed!
Thanks so much!
