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

Shop and studio tour

Today I decided I would do something a little different. I've shown bits and pieces of the shop and studio in the hundreds of pictures on the blog but I get many requests to show how it all fits together. I know I always enjoy poking around other folk's shops and always learn something new in the process.

Our shop is about 3,100 square feet in total. The main workshop measures 32 x 48 feet. The router room is 24 x 21 feet and the studio is 20 by 30 feet including the lower library. We have a couple other small areas used for storage as well.

We enjoy our workspace every day and thought you might like a little tour. So here's a video...
