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

Ready to go!

This afternoon I received word the truck would arrive first thing tomorrow morning. It was time to move the sign out onto the parking lot in readiness. It was a simple matter of rolling it out the door on the dolly we had built it on and then using the forklift transfer it onto its legs. tomorrow it will load in a minute or two when the truck gets here.

I couldn't resist one last picture out in the parking lot as it got dark this afternoon. The plain background of the neighbor's shop really showed off the sign to it's best advantage.

As soon as the sign was out the door it was time for a shop cleanup. Other projects await. It is on to the next...
