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

Denver Workshop coming fast!

  • We are now putting together the agenda for the three day Denver Workshop in mid-September where I will be presenting along with Jeff Harman and Thad Staples. We'll be covering everything from basics through fully dimensional pieces. There will also be plenty of hands-on in the evenings including how we finish our pieces.  It promises to be a great workshop. I'll be doing some sessions on designing and marketing as well. If you are interested in attending this workshop don't wait too long. It's going to fill. The information and links are below...
