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

Bridge build - part one

Routing the four, large, detailed panels from 1" thick precision Board took a long while - almost fifty hours in total. The panels turned out wonderful!

As good as the panels looked when we routed them, they looked even better as we installed them.

 In the next days the many details on the underside of the bridge will come together. I used the MultiCm to cut a bunch of pieces that will be installed tomorrow. The large crown moldings will be part of that work. Stay tuned...
