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

Chasing the elusive butterfly

As we begin planning our new house in earnest, one of our happy tasks is to choose the perfect theme. Like our commercial projects the theme will extend to the corner blocks of the doors and windows and throughout the trim of the building. On commercial projects this is part of the branding, while in our house it will be merely decor. But the decor will have meaning and significance. 

Janis has loved butterflies as long as I've known her. This house is the perfect opportunity to celebrate that love. So, the first task is to narrow down the theme and style. It turns out there are endless ways one can draw a butterfly. 

I'll bet there are just as many clever ways to incorporate this theme as there are ways to render them.

Stay tuned...
