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

We are now through our first day of the Orlando Sign Magic Workshop. While the class size may be small, the enthusiasm for learning is high. Each student is getting plenty of one on one time and getting all their questions answered. EJ Nordurft, the product rep from EnRoute is aptly handling the technical side of the lessons while I handle the artistic side. We've covered lots of EnRoute territory and also done some hands-on parts of the workshops. The entire group is experienced in EnRoute and eager to learn more. It is going well!

Tomorrow I'll be gathering more pictures of the projects as we proceed. Stay tuned...
