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

Tree almost complete

The tree with the bug hanging the banner is also nearing completion.  I am delighted with how the routed banner is coming along. We added a subtle blend of darker red in the shadows of the banner to make the folds appear even deeper. It worked well. The piece is now complete save for a blend on the lettering.
