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

Soggy success

Today dawned cool and very wet. And it rained harder as the day went on. Even so, today was the day we would install the Lark Rise sign. The client was responsible for the hole in the ground and did a great job. We arrived with the sign in perfect shape. Hailey mixed up the concrete while I untied and prepped the sign. The landscaper gave us a hand lifting it up and it slid into place in an instant. Four bags f concrete mix later the sign was permanently installed. I checked things with the level and then we stacked  few rocks around the base for the pictures. The client will landscape the area properly on a nice day soon.

The sign fit perfectly into it's permanent home. I'll go back on a sunny day to paint the metal brackets and structure. Today was just too soggy for the task.
