Wow!  I don't even remember writing that reply!  Must have been awhile
ago.  Anyway, I always enjoy creating a new font.  Currently, I'm up
north and away from my font making software, but I'll be happy to give
it a go after the 5th of January.  Until then, if you can scan or
mouse up some images of how you want the runes to look (including a
writing line, if possible) and e-mail them to me, that'll speed the
process along.
