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

Up, up and away

The Trinidad project prefabrication is also quickly moving towards completion. Today we sent off three more forty-foot containers chock full of fun pieces. (nine now in total) Two more empty containers arrive tomorrow and more will follow in the next weeks.

Meanwhile, in the shop work continues at full speed. Today the washroom signs were routed. Rather than build a new file I looked up an old oval barrel head I had done a lot time ago and rotated it to be flat rather than vertical. I added new layers for the lettering and border to lay over it. The signs read 'FAMILY'  'LASSES' 'LADS' and 'CREW ONLY'.
