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

One more set of pieces...

Pieces of the MultiCam project continue to be cut, assembled and stacked around the shop. Today the top of the ribs/arches for the boardroom were glued together. Each rib is made from 14 pieces and all have to fit together perfectly. With the precision of the MultiCam that is no problem - a far cry from my jigsaw days. 

Over the next few days I'll fasten the last pieces on, add the hand finished details and prime them in preparation for transport and final assembly on site. With the pieces now surrounding me every day I am anxious to see it all together at long last! It's going to look better than the concept by far!

Hopefully by the end of next week it will all become real...
