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

A few more details

Today was another day at the Fox and Hounds. We tidied up a few more details. The contractor had painted the cooler door edges and surrounding trim from bright white to dark brown. It looked pretty good!

We hung the hostess sign in the entry. I had done a few modifications from the original design. 

We also pulled down a bunch of the direction and rule signs through the pub and brightened up the raised lettering, making them more readable in the dim light of the pub. 

I double checked some measurements for one last routing project for the inside of the pub. I'll be creating an overlay panel for the back door that will be similar to the one I did for the cooler door.

Stay tuned...
