Over the last couple of days of the holidays I've spent an hour or so hand sculpting details onto the train engine. It is coming together quickly and now the front is almost complete. Next up I'll start in on the cab and then onto the plumbing on the boiler. Tomorrow the crew is back in the shop and we get back into production once more. I'll fit more time on the train into the evenings and weekends. I'll be posting more pictures as things progress. Stay tuned...
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
