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

Worth the wait
Back in November of last year we installed the lighthouse sign at the edge of the bumper boat pool. Here's the POST that covered that part of the project. The weather was turning cold and we had to put off the concrete work around the base until the weather warmed up in spring. We had plenty to do on the (larger) project until then.
Today at last was the day to finish off the concrete work. As always it was a team effort. Marty did the mixing. Jeff was the mud runner. Peter and I applied the mud and the whole crew jumped in for the carving and cleanup.
It will look even better when everything is painted and fabulous with the water and boats in the pool. There's no other bumper boat pool like it anywhere!
