Progress


I have been steadily making progress on my hand carved numbers. The numbers are proofed, mounted to MDF and shimmed with mat board to bring them up to type high.

When I originally carved the numbers, I didn't leave any space to cut apart the individual items. Instead, I cut the linoleum into single numbers, then mounted them all to a single board so that I could align the vertical position. If one of the numbers is crooked it is very obvious because of the horizontal lines in the top of the font.
