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

Wood carver install

Yesterday was finally time to install the wood carver figure we had sculpted. The hardest part of the install was hoisting it up on the scaffold. once we got it into position it took less and 30 seconds to slip in the routed shutters and then screw it securely to the wall. My client's carpenter will finish the trim around it to blend everything in like it should be.

I'll go back in a day or two after the carpenter had finished and the scaffold is gone for a few more pictures.
