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

Western eye candy

There's only ten more working days before the park opens. This means the hours are long and the pace is quick. We have one more day of sculpted concrete work to do and then it is down to paint. The clock ticks loud each and every day.

Today the crew finished painting and glazing the upper false fronts. This meant we could at last install two more signs. We used french cleats made from 3/4" plywood to hang the signs securely.

The signs don't scream from the upper areas but rather simply and quietly tell the story of their local. For those guests who are observant the dimensional signs will be a delightful reward.
