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

Busy day!

The shop is full - wall to wall with routed pieces and concrete sculptures as well in all stages of completion. The painting process is well underway on both routed signs and concrete work.

As fast as the pieces are cut from Precision Board on the MultiCam and I can get them glued together we are also starting the sculpting of the fully dimensional elements. Peter finished the horse sculpt today and it is looking very fine!

In between all of my other tasks I managed to do the tortoise sculpt with lots of help from Sarah. The sign is now ready the head to the paint department.

 I also roughed out the snake sculpt for the Apothecary sign. Tomorrow he'll get his scales and other details.

It was a very productive day and tomorrow we'll pick up where we left off.
