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

One more piece down

This week we finished the major part of the fireplace in the pub. It is as far as we can go until the temporary bar closes and relocates to the permanent one in the next week or so. All the work we have been doing for the last month finally came together. Hand sculpted concrete blended seamlessly with routed Precision Board. Above the London rooftop provided the icing on the cake.

In the next few weeks we'll be keeping the router busy whittling out pieces to finish this place off. Stay tuned...
