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

More progress

As big as the sign looked as we began to assemble it, it only looks larger with each additional piece. We are working on the lower portions of the sign to start. The bulk of the work at this point is to take care of the glue joints, even things out and add the texture I desire on the face of the sign. Once that is done we'll finish up the top bits and then start in on the fox head sculpt. Then we'll work our way down with the paint.

It is coming together fairly quick. Stay tuned for more...
