Installing and exhaust fan in a woodworking shop

I need to install an exhaust fan in my wood shop for evacuating the odor/fumes from finishing. I think my only options are to cut thought the rim joists or go through the concrete block wall. The rim joist also has two more 2 x 10's lag screwed on the outside of the house to which a deck is attached. So, that means I'd have to cut through 4 thicknesses. Sounds tough to me. I'm thinking I should cut a hole through the block wall for a 10" fan but, I don't know how to cut the hole.
