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

Flying off to Danville...

Tomorrow morning, bright and early I'm off to Danville, Illinois to lead one of fifteen murals we will accomplish over the next four and a half days. The shop is unusually quiet and will stay so until my return on Monday. I decided to post a picture of the completed milepost sign which I posted some progress shots of a while back. 
While I'm gone and on the plane going and coming I'll be busy working on ideas for current projects and projects not yet dreamed. They say a change is as good as a rest. Even though we'll be working hard and for long hours I always come away from these type of events with my head chock full of new ideas and inspiration. I have no doubt this trip will be no exception.

Se you in a few days...
