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

Holiday is OVER!

On the way home from the airport I stopped in at the Fox & Hounds Pub to see how things were progressing. The ladies made good progress. The carpet goes in starting tomorrow morning.  We'll be back in the morning to kick things into high gear!

Once home it was time to start things back up in the shop. The main sign for over the outside doorway is now carved and ready for the final sculpting and paint. It will come along quickly now, ready for installation next week.

After two weeks of being away from the shop I was ready to do a little painting. I laid on the base coats, readying the horse sign for final glazes tomorrow. He's looking really good! By tomorrow night he will be ready to hang in the pub.

In the next week we'll work a bunch of overtime to finish the bulk of the project. It will come together in a hurry now and I can hardly wait to see it all in place!

Stay tuned...
