That's excellent.<br><br>Maybe, in another iteration, the numbers could be branded into the wood.
Thank you Kiteman!<br>I planned to do copper handmade hands &amp; numeral dots (Whiskey make on copper distillators) but copper details looks not well &amp; non-contrast. I was braked my mind...
Oh, another idea - why not use wrought-iron house numerals?
<br>Today I'll receive new stainless stell hands. It must looks with stainless hoops.<br>Then I'll try to select some dots or slashes. Dots like goblets will looks fine.<br>Another idea! Industrial barrels marked with laser. I wanna win laser cutter! )))))<br>
Haha, don't we all?
love it
Thank you jjd771!
