Done these too

I had to do these free handed too. I had to buy a 1/16 or a 1/8 in router bit where they were so small.

This was the original that I tried to match as close as possible.

You ever consider wood burning your numbers after you cut them?

I'm not sure about what you mean? Like instead of routing the numbers use a wood burning kit? I routed the numbers out before I cut them. That's why a couple of the 0's area little wider than the others. It would be hard to burn the numbers around a 1/4 0r 1/2 of a inch deep though. Wouldn't it? I had a wood burning kit when I was 9 or 10 I think.

After you carve out the letters with your router, take a wood burners and trace your letters, then when you stain it the letters will remain darker and rich looking. And it's not a torch but like a soldering iron for wood.

I would like to try it. I wonder if I could find the one I had as a kid? That would be pretty awesome. But it doesn't have temp controller. Do you have to change the heat on it any? Just for. Like different materials and making lighter and darker color I guess would be the main reason wouldn't it? Maybe it had some kind of temp control? I say it about would have to?
