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

Not every day goes according to plan...

Today was one of those days when everything went smooth - except for the task I was supposed to be doing. Cloudy grey skies and steady light rain prevented any painting until around two o'clock. For two hours the rain let off... mostly. In that brief window there were a whole bunch of people who jumped up on the scaffolding to help brush on some paint. We managed to get a solid coat on the whole background before we ran out of paint. Before we could acquire more the rain had returned.

The local folks were out in force, encouraging the muralists and helping out in every way possible. This little lady took advantage of the puddles much to the delight off all who were there.

Tomorrow, the sun will hopefully shine bright.
