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

A green glaze was next on the list . Suddenly the turtle became part of the sign. It was looking pretty good in a hurry.

Then it was time for the last glaze. It was a custom blend of dark brown, metallic cherry and a teeny bit of black. We call it plum crazy. Two coats of gold finished things off. We were done!
