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

Building a train - Part eleven

That big pile of pieces of cut and carved Precision Board is getting smaller each and every day as we glue and assemble and then fasten them to the train. Partially hidden pieces are painted as we go to make things easier. The big assemblies are now done and we are on to the smaller pieces and details.  It's hard to tell what is real steel and what is made from Precision Board.

In the next few days we'll finish off the last of the details. Then we'll start in on the log car and other features for the golf. Stay tuned...
