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

Up, up and away

The Trinidad project prefabrication is also quickly moving towards completion. Today we sent off three more forty-foot containers chock full of fun pieces. (nine now in total) Two more empty containers arrive tomorrow and more will follow in the next weeks.

Meanwhile, in the shop work continues at full speed. Today the washroom signs were routed. Rather than build a new file I looked up an old oval barrel head I had done a lot time ago and rotated it to be flat rather than vertical. I added new layers for the lettering and border to lay over it. The signs read 'FAMILY'  'LASSES' 'LADS' and 'CREW ONLY'.
