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

I've been getting lots of requests for video lately as some things simply don't translate well in the written word. My good friend Donna came over to my shop today with her little camera and we did a quick video session. Then I opened my iMac movie editor for the first time ever and gave it a whirl. I'm learning lots and it will get better with time, but here goes the first one in regard to the LED's for this project.

The LED's I'm using are called VIRGOlites from Heico Lighting www.heicolighting.com. They were purchased online from their distributor   www.futureelectronics.com
