Over the last couple of days of the holidays I've spent an hour or so hand sculpting details onto the train engine. It is coming together quickly and now the front is almost complete. Next up I'll start in on the cab and then onto the plumbing on the boiler. Tomorrow the crew is back in the shop and we get back into production once more. I'll fit more time on the train into the evenings and weekends. I'll be posting more pictures as things progress. Stay tuned...
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
