I have a great supply of scrap wood in our garage and when I saw this piece I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. 

 I started by marking every 5cm with a line; small line for 5cm and big for 10cm.
I then drew over with a thick permanent black marker.

 I knew that free-handing the number would be risky so I printed out number in a font I liked, cut them out and stuck them on next to the correct line. I then traced the number with a pen, pushing just hard enough that the outline would show up on the wood.
I then traced the outline and filled it in.

I decided to do numbers 1-20 as I wanted it to seem like a giant ruler. 1 is actually 10cm and so on, so it worked out perfectly.

I love the finished product and it suits the room perfectly.
