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

Wood carver install

Yesterday was finally time to install the wood carver figure we had sculpted. The hardest part of the install was hoisting it up on the scaffold. once we got it into position it took less and 30 seconds to slip in the routed shutters and then screw it securely to the wall. My client's carpenter will finish the trim around it to blend everything in like it should be.

I'll go back in a day or two after the carpenter had finished and the scaffold is gone for a few more pictures.
