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 up!

Today was a busy day as I textured up the letters and sun and welded everything securely in place. The top parts of the sign are now ready for paint.

Now that the routed parts are in place I can finish the welding and we can add all of the galvanized mesh. Once that is in place we can begin sculpting the fiberglass reinforced concrete rock work. The sign is quickly coming together.
