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

Building a train - Part eleven

That big pile of pieces of cut and carved Precision Board is getting smaller each and every day as we glue and assemble and then fasten them to the train. Partially hidden pieces are painted as we go to make things easier. The big assemblies are now done and we are on to the smaller pieces and details.  It's hard to tell what is real steel and what is made from Precision Board.

In the next few days we'll finish off the last of the details. Then we'll start in on the log car and other features for the golf. Stay tuned...
