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

Occasion Station

There is a second station for the train that travels around NEB's Garden. It is called the Occasion Station. It is a fanciful and ornate creation that speaks of the formal English garden in which it rests. With this project we will use EnRoute Software and our MultiCam CNC plasma cutter to the max. The station will be constructed primarily of plasma cut steel although a structural frame will be hidden inside.

The Occasion Station will be the site of innumerable family celebrations for such special occasions as birthday parties, picnics, easter egg hunts, pumpkin and Christmas tree festivals and a whole lot more. It will undoubtably be both challenging and FUN!
