Well, on the bright side, looks like you have a couple of pieces to practice with.
I've never routed letters, on anything, but have routed some edges on red oak. I'd say go very, very, slowly - not the bit, but moving the router. Not sure that would do it, but all I can come up with at the moment. Or, perhaps a Dremel would work better, if you have one.
Does it 'have' to be routed? Or could it be burned?
OK, something a bit different.

Barb, I've seen your postings and I find it difficult to believe you are having issues.(compliment), but in reading through the thread I did not find a description of the bit; on woods that are strongly grained use the lowest number of flutes and highest speed possible when using a CNC. A good style of bit for this application is a Rockler - Cnc Router Bits - Half-Conical Bits for CNC Carving Machines-Click-N-Carve Bits.
I have used the Chinese version of this on green red oak and it never skipped a beat.
Merry Christmas - Baker
