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

The early bird gets the worm.

The anniversary sign for the McIltrots has lain dormant for a few weeks, but after supper I snuck out to the shop to whip up the bird and worm with Abracadabra Sculpting epoxy. It didn't take long to do up the bird form and then apply the feathers one at a time. The worm only took seconds.

By tomorrow it will be rock hard and cured and I can begin the painting process. Then it will be off to Florida for them to enjoy.
