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

Moose structure

The Mighty Moose Ice Cream sign is coming along nicely. Before I could determine the size of the routed portion of the sign I wanted to weld up the moose structure. 

With the welding of the moose complete I could measure up the sign and been the design. I'll put that on the router and then weld up the ice cream cone with the cherry on top.

Stay tuned...
