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

It always amazes me how a dimensional sign comes to life with the addition of color. Shape and layers of various heights dramatically interact with the light, especially if it is carefully placed and focussed but COLOR is when the real magic happens.

Today we are working on the two Harold signs for the pub project and with the addition of the colors they sprang to life - just like magic! Hailey is doing the bulk of the work and doing a great job too!

Stay tuned for final pics when they are done...
