Default Routing numbers

Hi All, This is my first post & I have a question. I am making a display for the American Legion Charter Room. Volunteer work of course. The display is 6' wide x 2' high. There will be symbols for each branch of the military, Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force & Coast Guard. The frame will have a fluted column on each side with crown molding on the top & the rest wrapped with 1" trim, cherry wood. The background is military gray painted on mdf & everything will be sprayed with poly to finish. It's for Post 907 & I wanted to carve 907 in the bottom center of the display. I've done several inlay projects free hand but never #'s. The carved numbers will be painted black. What's the best bit to use? Any advice on techniques?
Jim

Jim, how big are the numbers.

Will the numbers be proud or inset?

For smaller numbers, I would use a cove bit or V-groove bit.
For larger numbers you may need to take out some material with a straight cutter?

Default Coast Guard

Just a clarification for all those veterans of the Coast Guard! The Coast Guard is not a part of the Defense Department, it is a arm of the Department of Commerce. That is not to say that many loyal Americans didn't serve in Viet Nam and other theaters of war and distinguish themselves by their valor.
