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

Sign Magic Workshop options

This summer/fall there will be FOUR Sign Magic Workshops. It will keep me very busy and will also allow many more to learn exactly how we do all the things we do. For the first time we will be taking the workshops on the road. While much of the same knowledge we share in our mobile workshop will be taught, the magic of our shop/studio and environs will only be able to be experienced in pictures. The workshop to be held here in our studio is to be held on September 30, October 2, 2011. Included in that workshop will be a tour of the MultiCam facility and the Fox & Hounds Pub along with some other local projects. We will also do welding, cement sculpture and a few other things, not always practical or possible on the road.

We have received so many requests to travel to various locations because not everyone is able or willing to take the time to travel to us. It is understandable. The Sign Magic Workshops will include as much information and hands-on lessons as is practical for each location.
