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

Installing trim

The routed pieces were mitered and then fastened in place.  We then used sculpting epoxy to fill the holes and seams before painting.

The pieces will get three coats of base color and then three layers of glaze. The hearts will be then painted pink to match the corner block trim on the rest of the house like in the background of the photo.

Today the last of the trim was painted for around the circular windows and doors. We'll be installing that tomorrow. Stay tuned...
