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

Another piece is ready.

One of our many tasks today was to finish the paint on the scroll for he Fox & Hounds Pub stage.  It got a coat of Coastal Enterprises thick bodied primer and two base coats of paint yesterday. Today Hailey and I did the glaze this morning. Then Hailey did the two coats of dark brown on the lettering to complete the project. All of the paint was 100% acrylic latex.

One more piece of the puzzle is ready to install.
