    That's excellent.

    Maybe, in another iteration, the numbers could be branded into the wood.

    Thank you Kiteman!
    I planned to do copper handmade hands & numeral dots (Whiskey make on copper distillators) but copper details looks not well & non-contrast. I was braked my mind...

    Oh, another idea - why not use wrought-iron house numerals?


    Today I'll receive new stainless stell hands. It must looks with stainless hoops.
    Then I'll try to select some dots or slashes. Dots like goblets will looks fine.
    Another idea! Industrial barrels marked with laser. I wanna win laser cutter! )))))

    Haha, don't we all?

    Thank you jjd771!
