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

Chasing the elusive butterfly

As we begin planning our new house in earnest, one of our happy tasks is to choose the perfect theme. Like our commercial projects the theme will extend to the corner blocks of the doors and windows and throughout the trim of the building. On commercial projects this is part of the branding, while in our house it will be merely decor. But the decor will have meaning and significance. 

Janis has loved butterflies as long as I've known her. This house is the perfect opportunity to celebrate that love. So, the first task is to narrow down the theme and style. It turns out there are endless ways one can draw a butterfly. 

I'll bet there are just as many clever ways to incorporate this theme as there are ways to render them.

Stay tuned...
