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

Making the pieces puzzle shaped

This morning I fired up the MultiCam to cut the pieces for the window bucks. There were sixty-four pieces in all, cut from 25 sheets of half inch plywood. In spite of having other projects on the go that distracted me the task was done in less than two hours.

Now it is time to assemble the many pieces to create the forms or bucks for the windows.
