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

Bug Whirled feature/sign

We are making great progress on the large Bug Whirled sign. In the last couple of days we finished painting the giant base of the sign. We pushed it out of the shop to make room for other pieces. 

One of those pieces was the next layer (layer two of three) of the feature. Today was the day we would sculpt the globe to look like it was made from wood. It took the entire crew to accomplish the task but it turned out very nice!
