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

Another piece is ready.

One of our many tasks today was to finish the paint on the scroll for he Fox & Hounds Pub stage.  It got a coat of Coastal Enterprises thick bodied primer and two base coats of paint yesterday. Today Hailey and I did the glaze this morning. Then Hailey did the two coats of dark brown on the lettering to complete the project. All of the paint was 100% acrylic latex.

One more piece of the puzzle is ready to install.
