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

Pub progress pictures

With the two workshops now behind us we have picked up where we left off at the Fox and Hounds Pub. Many dimensional signs await final placement in our shop. Onsite the contractor and many trades are finishing their work allowing us to start our final finishes at last.
In the entry we are down to final painting and glazing. The carpet arrives on Monday in the Restaurant, meaning we have plenty to do before then. But the carpet will signal the time to begin hanging the dimensional eye candy that awaits in the shop - ready to go!

In the bar area we are working hard to finish the beams and woodwork. Next up will be sculpting the knarly grape vine that winds around the brick arch.

In the pub the fireplace is reciving final finishes. Tomorrow we hang the dimensional family crest permanently.

Stay tuned for more progress pics soon...
