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 sculpting done

It's been a busy last few weeks as we work hard on meeting promised delivery dates for the PNE Playland project. The mechanical bugs proved to be a lot of hand sculpting but the time we spent working on the fine details of the mechanics was well worth it. As soon as the sculpting crew was done the painting crew followed. We now have only a little painting left but already the bugs are looking spectacular! We can hardly wait to see them hoisted into position!

The dancing ladybug who will appear to twirl on the top of the globe as also coming along nicely. We finished the sculpting of the arms and legs today. As soon as the sculpting was complete the painting crew began the layering on of the paint and glazes.
