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

Holiday is OVER!

On the way home from the airport I stopped in at the Fox & Hounds Pub to see how things were progressing. The ladies made good progress. The carpet goes in starting tomorrow morning.  We'll be back in the morning to kick things into high gear!

Once home it was time to start things back up in the shop. The main sign for over the outside doorway is now carved and ready for the final sculpting and paint. It will come along quickly now, ready for installation next week.

After two weeks of being away from the shop I was ready to do a little painting. I laid on the base coats, readying the horse sign for final glazes tomorrow. He's looking really good! By tomorrow night he will be ready to hang in the pub.

In the next week we'll work a bunch of overtime to finish the bulk of the project. It will come together in a hurry now and I can hardly wait to see it all in place!

Stay tuned...
