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

Pedal Power - Part three
The pedal power sign is a good size and since I routed it with a 1/8" ball nose bit with an 80% overlap the two sides took about eight hours each to do. The pieces were cut from 1.5" thick 30 lb Precision Board. They turned out great! Tomorrow I'll cut the three half inch thick inner layers and then we'll be ready to start the final assembly.
