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

Working on two fronts at once.

While we were busy painting the board room at MultiCam our MultiCam was busy back at the ranch whittling out the last of the lot signs for our Oyama subdivision project. The signs were designed in EnRoute with bevels, layers and textures of course. They were cut from 30 lb Precision Board. Over the next few days we'll paint them up and gild them too for a little bit of sparkle. Each marker will be mounted to a large rock which is to be surrounded by a Japanese styled garden.

It's quite the pile of signs - with six more still being cut as I type. Using EnRoute and the MultiCam to create the signs (save for painting) makes production of this type of project easy and fast.
