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

Beer flows tomorrow

With the new bar of the Fox & Hounds Pub opening tomorrow it was a busy place today. With plumbers, electricians, carpenters, the beer dispenser guy and a tile setter busy around us I camped on top of the bar and began sculpting the grape vine from the top down. The beer tap stand was a top priority. It came together by just after lunch and looked pretty cool, complete with an owl hiding from the fox in the hollow end of the snag. 

Tomorrow we'll continue work on the grape vine and begin to hang bits of the eye candy, the dimensional, routed signs at long last. Stay tuned for pics tomorrow...
