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

Last piece on

The last piece of the Fox and Hounds Pub sign was glued in place today. There are 21 pieces in all. Now it is on to the last of the carving and then the sculpting of the fox.

Tomorrow we'll set up a scaffold to work from the top down, painting as we go. It will make it a whole lot easier and more comfortable to work. Stay tuned for pictures and more progress reports.
