It is hard to believe that it was only seven 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 - but I just knew it could do fantastic stuff.

Through extensive research I quickly found out that with the relative simplicity of EnRoute, CNC routers were capable of just about anything imaginable. This journal will chronicle that journey to date and continue each week with two or three entries as we continue to explore just what is possible with this wonderful software... -dan

First pics of the completed project

It is always exciting to see a project come together. Today we installed a few more pieces of the MultiCam project.  The front reception area is now complete with the exception of a large display piece for the lobby wall. The desk is pushed back in it's permanent place and fits nicely. The millwork and countertops are in place and everything works together nicely.

The desk looks cool from every angle as we move towards the stairs. The secretary was all smiles today as she continued putting everything in it's permanent home. The finishing touch will be the Fat Albert light bulbs I must remember next trip to the office.

The end table in the corner looms over the reception chairs. The wainscot panelling and logo medallions fit in nicely, subtly there but not immediately obvious until you look closely.

On the stair the oversize gears continue the theme in a dramatic way. Look closely and you will notice my name is 'cast' into one of the small gears - my way of signing our work. I wonder how many will take note of this small detail?

Upstairs the gear theme continues. On the walls the chair rail has the same linear gear as well, but smaller and painted to match the rest of the dark trim.

There is plenty more to show of course, which we will display next week. In the Jurassic room work has begun in earnest. It's going top be pretty cool!  Stay tuned for more...

In the meantime I'm off to Denver for the EnRoute Workshop.
