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

Bug Whirled feature - sign

We are making great progress on the large Bug Whirled sign. In the last couple of days we finished painting the giant base of the sign. We pushed it out of the shop to make room for other pieces. 

One of those pieces was the next layer (layer two of three) of the feature. Today was the day we would sculpt the globe to look like it was made from wood. It took the entire crew to accomplish the task but it turned out very nice!
