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

First trim installed

The new house is coming along great! The roof sheeting is a couple of days from completion. While the carpenters were busy on the roof we were busy on the ground floor welding up the framework for the trees and then attaching the lath for the plasterwork to follow. At long last we are now ready to begin icing the cake.

The trim pieces around the house door were installed today. This means we can now begin the applying and sculpting the fiberglass reinforced concrete. We do the first tree tomorrow.

Today we attached the trim around the door which we routed yesterday. We'll trowel the fiberglass reinforced concrete right up to it and then sculpt it to blend it as seamlessly as possible.

Stay tuned to see it come together!
