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

A peek at the bigger picture
We are now three months (of eleven) into the Skallywag Bay Adventure Park project. The shop is full of projects on the go and out in the parking lot there are enough finished pieces to fill three forty foot shipping containers with enough pieces still left to begin loading two more containers. Forty-one pieces are finished. Eleven pieces are sculpted and ready for paint. Fourteen more armatures are welded and ready for sculpting.
I've been showing some of the routed work previously but here's a peek at a few of pieces completed thus far.
This is a very challenging project and the biggest single contract we have tackled in the twenty-two year history of our company. It is also the most fun we've ever had. Thankfully we have a wonderful and skillful team of young people to help us along the way. Stay tuned for more...
