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

Wooly is done!

This sign was a whole lot of fun to do from the first inkling until it's finish. Today the ladies put on the final glazes and then painted the lettering. Wooly is going to be a playful addition to our shop display. The sign measures 33" wide by 36" tall by 20" from the wall to the tip of Wooly's trunk. THAT is a dimensional sign!

Yesterday I had a new customer drop by the shop. He owned an ice-cream parlor on a very busy road. All he needed to do was stop the traffic. He needed a landmark. One look at our little wooly made the sale of a very creative sign. Watch for the saga of that one being made real soon...
