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 tree almost done

The Bug Whirled tree/sign is also coming along nicely. The mechanical ladybug (Like all of the others) holding up the banner is a combination of mediums. The body of the bug is sculpted concrete while the arms, hands, legs and feet is Abracadabra Sculpting Epoxy.

Once the bug was sculpted we moved on to the final base coats of paint followed by the glazes. The tree is quickly coming to life.
