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

Ready to go!

This afternoon I received word the truck would arrive first thing tomorrow morning. It was time to move the sign out onto the parking lot in readiness. It was a simple matter of rolling it out the door on the dolly we had built it on and then using the forklift transfer it onto its legs. tomorrow it will load in a minute or two when the truck gets here.

I couldn't resist one last picture out in the parking lot as it got dark this afternoon. The plain background of the neighbor's shop really showed off the sign to it's best advantage.

As soon as the sign was out the door it was time for a shop cleanup. Other projects await. It is on to the next...
