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

Cool water jet cut inlays!

I posted last week about the cool toys I get to play with on occasion. For the new bar at the Fox and Hounds Pub we want to inlay a brass and stainless version of the logo into the cast countertop. I got the call  from our MultiCam dealer that the pieces were cut this morning. I rushed right over!

I've seen the MultiCam water jet in action before. The cut quality and accuracy was nothing short of amazing. The pieces were absolutely perfect! Now I can hardly wait to see them cast into the concrete and polished up. It is an extremely classy detail for the project!
