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

Finishing Touches

With our Sculpture Magic Workshop now only four days away the name plaques for our attendees are well into production. Today I show three that need just a little more work to be finished. One or two more glazes and perhaps a few highlights will complete the job.

Gary's is the most complete and looks good enough to eat already.

Dustin's name plaque needs two more colors of glaze and then the lettering will be painted. We are still deciding on the final colors.

The photo does not do Doug's justice. Rich blends and deep metallic glazes make this a delight to hold and look at. One or two more colors and some carefully applied highlights will make this a real (WIERD) gem.

Three others are in about the same state. I'll be taking pictures of them later today and posting them as well. It is hard to believe that they are merely routed Precision Board underneath.

Stay tuned...
