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

Great start!

This morning bright and early the first of the attendees arrived for the workshop, By mid morning there were two. At lunchtime another joined the fun and through the afternoon the rest arrived. Everyone was eager to get started and once the introductions were done we kicked things into gear. 
We played with the plasm cutter and welder and then started in on the sculpting concrete project. Everyone tried their hand at this new (for them) art form. By this time the ice was broken (and melted away) and the questions were coming thick and fast. The sharing and learning had begun for real.

This is a great group that is hungry for knowledge and hands-on experience. The workshop doesn't start officially until tomorrow....
This is going to be fun!
