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

Another milestone on the NEB's project

Both the MultiCam plasma cutter and router are being worked a lot these days as we move into the final stages of the aches for the NEB's Fun World bowling alley project. We've cut many hundreds of pieces and used more than a hundred and twenty sheets of 3/4" plywood and tons of plate steel. 

Today, the crew applied the fibreglass reinforced concrete and sculpted the last of the front arches for the bowling alley lanes. These pieces will fill a second semi trailer and get a good start on the third when we ship in a few weeks. 

With the bowling lane fronts done it is time to move onto the side walls. The design of these arches is a little different as the bottoms will be filled in. There are five arches for each side wall. The first two of ten pieces are now fully assembled and ready for the lath to be stapled on.
