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

Cutting it close

With the installation of the moose happening early tomorrow morning we simply had to finish it tonight. Generally I like to finish well before deadlines but this has been an incredibly crazy week. We worked until just before 10 pm tonight to get the last of the paint on the mighty moose. Because it was too tall to finish inside the shop we completed it under the outside porch. High humidity and steady rain made the paint dry extra slow. ten high powered fans aimed at the moose took care of that problem in a hurry!

It was too dark to take final pictures but I grabbed this one as we did the second to last glaze on the moose. Final glazes and the painting of the lettering came after this. 

Yarrow gets a new landmark tomorrow morning early. :)
