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

Shop day

The rain poured down today making it the perfect day to do some painting on the many signs in production in the shop.  The smaller and relatively flat dimensional signs got their first two coats of base colors today. One more coat and they will be ready for the glazes.

The Happy Horse Saloon sign received it's final touches to make it ready for installation.

The ladies also mixed sculpting epoxy for me to get a good start on the bear sculpt on the bike rental sign. I've been looking forward to getting back to work on this project for quite some time.

The project up at the lake is almost ready for all of the signs to be installed. They will be the icing on a very fancy cake without a doubt.
