It is hard to believe that it was almost ten years ago I witnessed a CNC router in action for the very first time. I was fascinated with what I saw 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 and LOTS of hands-on practice I quickly found out that my MultiCam router was capable of just about anything imaginable.This journal will chronicle that journey to date and continue each week with two or three entries as I continue to explore just what is possible with this wonderful tool... -dan

Curved ceiling framework

The vaulted ceiling pieces I cut a few days ago fit perfectly. They strengthened and tied tougher the top of the ceiling joists where they attached to the ridge beam and also gently wrapped the curved ceiling over the top of the room. I kept the cross strapping to a minimum (for now) to allow room for the spray foam guys to do their work.

In the lower ceiling of the room the arched corner pieces were screwed in place to round the corners slightly. Headroom (both visual and actual) was not compromised in the process.
