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

Two more pics

Today we had company and went for lunch at the Fox & hounds Pub. I was delighted to see the place buzzing. I sat facing the door and watched people as they came in. It was obvious who was new or hadn't been there since the renovation. As they entered they would smile and I could see the delight in their faces. As they enjoyed their dinner they were rubber necking and pointing out various signs and features as they took notice. The place felt warm and inviting - just as it had been designed to do. 

Since the last time I had gone a light had been installed over the Rover's Return sign making  photo possible at last. It looked good there. 

On my return to the shop we put the finishing touches to the Shady Rest sign. It is now ready to go to it's new home.

Now it is time to get busy with the many other projects on the go in the shop...
