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

Wooly is done!

This sign was a whole lot of fun to do from the first inkling until it's finish. Today the ladies put on the final glazes and then painted the lettering. Wooly is going to be a playful addition to our shop display. The sign measures 33" wide by 36" tall by 20" from the wall to the tip of Wooly's trunk. THAT is a dimensional sign!

Yesterday I had a new customer drop by the shop. He owned an ice-cream parlor on a very busy road. All he needed to do was stop the traffic. He needed a landmark. One look at our little wooly made the sale of a very creative sign. Watch for the saga of that one being made real soon...
