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

Moose gets his skin

Today was the day to put a skin on the mighty  moose sign which we routed the a double sided sign for a while back. We mixed a special fiberglass reinforced concrete to trowel on about an inch thick. We then let it set up to a certain point.

Then we carved in the final form, the fur, eyes and other entails. Peter (above) works on sculpting the waffle cone while Brando carves in the moose's fur.

Here's the moose at quitting time, soon reedy for paint. Stay tuned...
