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

Sign Magic Workshop almost here!

The last couple days have been frantic with many meetings and lots of organizing. I haven't had much time to create routing files. The beauty of having a MultiCam is I can easily keep it busy while I do other things. It can work all by itself(as long as I fed it the right instructions)

The next Sign Magic Workshop is just over two weeks away. So the CNC is kept busy cranking out textured letter panels for our guests to practice their painting and glazing techniques. Custom name tags for each guest will be the next task. I'll be doing step by steps on a few of those files in the next days. 

Stay tuned...
