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

Bright coloured fun!

With the first delivery day imminent we worked hard to meet the deadline. The powder coater delivered all of the colourful parts with only hours to spare. We bolted the bright plasma cut flutterbyes onto the fence panels.

Inside the shop the tree sculpture is done.  little more welding was done to the temporary carrier frame to ready it to be fastened to the truck. It will soon be rolled out onto the parking lot in readiness.

The sculpting and painting of the fluttery body was the last thing to get crossed off the list but it too is ready to go. The truck and crane arrive early on Monday morning. It will be fun to watch this load go down the highway as we travel the sixty miles into the city to supervise the installation the same day.
