Do you have a wood burner? A cheap one isn't but $20-$30. You could stencil out your numerals and then burn over the stencil using different tips for different effects. Just a thought

Do you have a bandsaw? You could cut them out with a 3/16 blade. Shouldn't be to hard to do.
Sounds good. Ill be checking on this one.

When it's rustic......it's rustic

Looks like you'll have to use a jig saw or a coping saw. Can't wait for it.

A coping saw would work like Dom says. Not too expensive if you don't already have one.
