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

First trim installed

The new house is coming along great! The roof sheeting is a couple of days from completion. While the carpenters were busy on the roof we were busy on the ground floor welding up the framework for the trees and then attaching the lath for the plasterwork to follow. At long last we are now ready to begin icing the cake.

The trim pieces around the house door were installed today. This means we can now begin the applying and sculpting the fiberglass reinforced concrete. We do the first tree tomorrow.

Today we attached the trim around the door which we routed yesterday. We'll trowel the fiberglass reinforced concrete right up to it and then sculpt it to blend it as seamlessly as possible.

Stay tuned to see it come together!
