**Start**and

**Finish**as well as incremental score numbers 5, 10, 20, 30 etc.

The problem I'm having is the material is 4 inches wide and 16 inches long, so the numbers are 3/8 inches the letter ar 1/2 inch. I have tries several fonts.

Arial, New Times Roman, Forte, Maiandra and Baskerville Old. All of those fonts tear out the centers of zero, 6, 9 and 4. I'm using a small 7 degree 1/8 inch end mill with a depth of 1/8 inch. I've tried oak, cherry and birch plywood with the same results. Any suggestions are appreciated. I'm at the point of not including the scoring numbers but the board is for a child and the scoring numbers would be helpful for someone new to the game.

Thanks
