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

The sun is almost up

While the MultiCam was whittling the sun I was welding the finished letters onto the sign base.  The sign started to look pretty massive in the shop.

The sun and background rays were laminated together in three layers. I used Coastal Enterprises PB BOND-240 glue. It is a one part glue that is activated with a mist of water.

Tomorrow I'll go over every square inch of the last glued letters and the sun, preparing them for paint before mounting them to the sign base as well. I'll be posting pictures so stay tuned...
