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

Made in the shade!

Today it dawned gray with a slight misting rain, but by nine o'clock, after a leisurely breakfast the clouds began to part at last. We poured the coal to the painting process... at one point I counted 21 people with brushes in their hand slinging paint on the wall.

By the time it became too dark to paint the mural was largely complete. A couple hours tomorrow will finish it off and I'll breathe a sign of relief.
