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

Cutting it close

With the installation of the moose happening early tomorrow morning we simply had to finish it tonight. Generally I like to finish well before deadlines but this has been an incredibly crazy week. We worked until just before 10 pm tonight to get the last of the paint on the mighty moose. Because it was too tall to finish inside the shop we completed it under the outside porch. High humidity and steady rain made the paint dry extra slow. ten high powered fans aimed at the moose took care of that problem in a hurry!

It was too dark to take final pictures but I grabbed this one as we did the second to last glaze on the moose. Final glazes and the painting of the lettering came after this. 

Yarrow gets a new landmark tomorrow morning early. :)
