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 tree in colour

The Bug Whirled tree/sign is also coming along nicely. The mechanical ladybug (Like all of the others) holding up the banner is a combination of mediums. The body of the bug is sculpted concrete while the arms, hands, legs and feet is Abracadabra Sculpting Epoxy.

Once the bug was sculpted we moved on to the final base coats of paint followed by the glazes. The tree is quickly coming to life.
