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

Growing tall

The knarly grape vines that wind around the brick arch by the pub bar is now coated out in sculpting epoxy. It is just the rough coat but the vine is looking pretty cool. Tomorrow we begin the final, detailed coat.

On the bar the beer tap stand is now bulked out. It too will be a knarly tree, complete with a hidden owl in the hollow end.

Stay tuned for updates tomorrow...
