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

The sun is almost up

While the MultiCam was whittling the sun I was welding the finished letters onto the sign base.  The sign started to look pretty massive in the shop.

The sun and background rays were laminated together in three layers. I used Coastal Enterprises PB BOND-240 glue. It is a one part glue that is activated with a mist of water.

Tomorrow I'll go over every square inch of the last glued letters and the sun, preparing them for paint before mounting them to the sign base as well. I'll be posting pictures so stay tuned...
