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

Soggy success

Today dawned cool and very wet. And it rained harder as the day went on. Even so, today was the day we would install the Lark Rise sign. The client was responsible for the hole in the ground and did a great job. We arrived with the sign in perfect shape. Hailey mixed up the concrete while I untied and prepped the sign. The landscaper gave us a hand lifting it up and it slid into place in an instant. Four bags f concrete mix later the sign was permanently installed. I checked things with the level and then we stacked  few rocks around the base for the pictures. The client will landscape the area properly on a nice day soon.

The sign fit perfectly into it's permanent home. I'll go back on a sunny day to paint the metal brackets and structure. Today was just too soggy for the task.
