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

Train on the trestle

Yesterday was an exciting day as it was time for the second delivery to the WhistlePunk Hollow project. Each time we make a delivery it is a fun drive with lots of waves, wows and thumbs-up along the way.

The log car was the first piece to be lifted onto the trestle which the client had built. It went up smoothly and without a hitch.

The engine was a little trickier to slide into place. Jeff, running the big excavator confidently and skillfully nudged it into position without a scratch. Our job on the trestle was to simply guide it into place between the marks.

The train looked spectacular in place, perfectly in scale with the trestle. It reads perfectly as you approach the golf from the town. 

It was smiles all around as I drove away.
