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

Too much fun!

The pieces for the Fox & Hounds Pub and Restaurant continue to come together. The last of the sculpted concrete work is now complete in the restaurant portion of the project. A couple more hours of work will finish off the wild board's head above the mantle. It is made from sculpting epoxy over a welded steel armature.

From here on the bulk of the work in this area will be done on the CNC router and hung on the walls as we complete the project. There is also much painting to be done as well. 

It sure made me smile as I looked back as we left for the day. :)
