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

Pub progress pictures

With the two workshops now behind us we have picked up where we left off at the Fox and Hounds Pub. Many dimensional signs await final placement in our shop. Onsite the contractor and many trades are finishing their work allowing us to start our final finishes at last.
In the entry we are down to final painting and glazing. The carpet arrives on Monday in the Restaurant, meaning we have plenty to do before then. But the carpet will signal the time to begin hanging the dimensional eye candy that awaits in the shop - ready to go!

In the bar area we are working hard to finish the beams and woodwork. Next up will be sculpting the knarly grape vine that winds around the brick arch.

In the pub the fireplace is reciving final finishes. Tomorrow we hang the dimensional family crest permanently.

Stay tuned for more progress pics soon...
