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

Coming together

The truck piecers were quickly cut on the router. I first mocked them up to get a good idea of how the piece would look as it was assembled. I liked what I saw.

The bigger pieces were put together with PB Bond-240 glue (Coastal Enterprises) a one part glue that is misted with water to activate. The smaller pieces were assembled with a two part epoxy. Now I'll quickly shape everything with my air powered die grinder. Then we can get to sculpting with some Abracadabra Sculpting epoxy.

 It won't be long until we begin the painting process. Stay tuned...
