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

Finishing touches

Every project needs a couple more brush strokes to finish it off. This project was no exception. Once the gold leaf was on the white lettering immediately needed a couple of brush stroked of white to brighten a couple of dull areas and balance the sign.  

Now at last the sign is done, It will need a couple of days of dry heat to cure before it goes out the door, later this week. I can hardly wait to see it hanging proudly on the brick building it was designed for.

Now it is on to the next project...
