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

Finishing touches.

Every project needs a couple more brush strokes to finish it off. This project was no exception. Once the gold leaf was on the white lettering immediately needed a couple of brush stroked of white to brighten a couple of dull areas and balance the sign.  

Now at last the sign is done, It will need a couple of days of dry heat to cure before it goes out the door, later this week. I can hardly wait to see it hanging proudly on the brick building it was designed for.

Now it is on to the next project...
