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

Not every day goes according to plan...

Today was one of those days when everything went smooth - except for the task I was supposed to be doing. Cloudy grey skies and steady light rain prevented any painting until around two o'clock. For two hours the rain let off... mostly. In that brief window there were a whole bunch of people who jumped up on the scaffolding to help brush on some paint. We managed to get a solid coat on the whole background before we ran out of paint. Before we could acquire more the rain had returned.

The local folks were out in force, encouraging the muralists and helping out in every way possible. This little lady took advantage of the puddles much to the delight off all who were there.

Tomorrow, the sun will hopefully shine bright.
