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

No horsing around today

Today was a busy one in the shop, both getting ready for the upcoming Sign Magic Workshop and also working on some projects. The Lark Rise sign got the bulk of the attention today with the final base oats and glazes being applied. The ladies did the bulk of the work and did a great job too!

In the shot below Sarah and Haley are just finishing the second coat of glaze on the post.

In the bottom shot the first coat of the colors are on with a couple more to go. The last step will be the 23K gold leaf on the lettering.

We are almost there now!
