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

A green glaze was next on the list . Suddenly the turtle became part of the sign. It was looking pretty good in a hurry.

Then it was time for the last glaze. It was a custom blend of dark brown, metallic cherry and a teeny bit of black. We call it plum crazy. Two coats of gold finished things off. We were done!
