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 of the story.

The barrel received the last of the sculpting epoxy today. I formed the woodgrain on each stave and added the faux metal bands to 'hold' it together. It is now ready for the painting and aging process.

I'll be posting more shots in a day or two of the progress. Stay tuned...
