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

Curved ceiling framework

The vaulted ceiling pieces I cut a few days ago fit perfectly. They strengthened and tied tougher the top of the ceiling joists where they attached to the ridge beam and also gently wrapped the curved ceiling over the top of the room. I kept the cross strapping to a minimum (for now) to allow room for the spray foam guys to do their work.

In the lower ceiling of the room the arched corner pieces were screwed in place to round the corners slightly. Headroom (both visual and actual) was not compromised in the process.
