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

Saturday morning fishing time

This morning I spent some relaxing time doing the last of the sculpting on the mechanical fish. I also did some more painting of the base coats. The fish is looking pretty good now. Two or three more hours should pretty much tidy this little fellow up.

I'll be also readying the display space in my studio for this piece. It will be on a long, low bookcase adjacent to my desk. The lighting is subdued and directional in that location - perfect for this piece. It is almost like it was designed to go exactly there.  :)
