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

Shop day

The rain poured down today making it the perfect day to do some painting on the many signs in production in the shop.  The smaller and relatively flat dimensional signs got their first two coats of base colors today. One more coat and they will be ready for the glazes.

The Happy Horse Saloon sign received it's final touches to make it ready for installation.

The ladies also mixed sculpting epoxy for me to get a good start on the bear sculpt on the bike rental sign. I've been looking forward to getting back to work on this project for quite some time.

The project up at the lake is almost ready for all of the signs to be installed. They will be the icing on a very fancy cake without a doubt.
