It is hard to believe that it was almost ten years ago I witnessed a CNC router in action for the very first time. I was fascinated and simply had to have one! Although I had been in the creative end of the three dimensional sign business for most of my life I didn't really know what I would do with one of these machines - but I just knew it could do fantastic stuff.

Along with the CNC router I discovered the wonderful material called Precision Board and the glues, primers and other companion products they offer. Since then we have gone through many tons of the material using it in most signs and projects we tackle. This journal will chronicle our many adventures both past, present and future. I'll talk from the perspective of someone who pushes these products to the creative limit on a daily basis. I'll be adding to the stories two or three times each week. -dan

Another satisfied customer.

The sculpt went fairly quickly with the bulk of it being done in two days. One the epoxy had cured we primed the sign with Coastal Enterprises' FSC-88 WB primer. Then we painted on the base colors and added layer after layer of glaze building up the colors on the animals.
We put the last of the colors on the sign yesterday, then called the client this morning, letting them know it was ready for them to approve. They excitedly showed up this afternoon, delighted with their new sign. Our client will get the site ready, and install the foundation before we make the delivery.

The llama and alpaca will live in our shop a few more days before they leave.
