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

Beer flows tomorrow

With the new bar of the Fox & Hounds Pub opening tomorrow it was a busy place today. With plumbers, electricians, carpenters, the beer dispenser guy and a tile setter busy around us I camped on top of the bar and began sculpting the grape vine from the top down. The beer tap stand was a top priority. It came together by just after lunch and looked pretty cool, complete with an owl hiding from the fox in the hollow end of the snag. 

Tomorrow we'll continue work on the grape vine and begin to hang bits of the eye candy, the dimensional, routed signs at long last. Stay tuned for pics tomorrow...
