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

HEARTS! Everywhere.

We are wrapping up the routing on the house project for the season as we move on to begin the major customer project that will take us into NEXT summer. The crew is split right now with half finishing up the work on the house and the other half busy on the new. My job is to juggle and organize everyone, plus the final planning for the big project plus the preliminary planning for the next after that. I'm also trying to squeeze in as much physical work as I can as well.

Half the shop is stacked with almost completed trim in the final stages of paint. Most are the square trim blocks that will go on the intersections of all of the house trip. It is a colorful sight! Next week they will all be out of the shop and onto the house at last!

The house is now looking spectacular with the bulk of the trim in place. It is hard to believe how many pieces were designed in EnRoute, and routed with the MultiCam from 30 lb Precision Board. The project would have been almost impossible any other way. I'll be posting pictures soon of the house with the trim all in place.
