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

Laying on the paint

Today was spent largely laying primer and base coats on a whole lot of small routed pieces in the shop. This stage of our projects is the least spectacular but time consuming none-the-less. The small shady rest sign got the most color with the foliage receiving one glaze with more to come. This sign will come together quickly as I work my way down.

Tomorrow we'll show a lot more progress as it comes together.
