After more than two months out of the studio and away from the router I was back at my desk and programing some files and turned on the MultiCam once more. I quickly found out I was a little rusty with both the program and the machine. EnRoute is a wonderful program that isn’t too difficult but like many things technical it requires that one does things in a certain order, paying attention the whole way through. As usual there were lots of things going on out in the studio and out in the yard as well. I found that with my being out of practice it till a few tries to get things right
Today I have a last load of pictures of the Cultus Lake Adventure Park. The signs on the western side of the building have been featured here before as they went through various stages of construction. They were designed in EnRoute and then routed from Precision Board on our Multicam router.
Everywhere one looks in the Cultus Lake Adventure Park there is a great photo to be had. From the road the park looks inviting. We carefully layered the elements to maximize the space but also to show great from the road. Everything is designed to integrate and work together
Cultus Lake Adventure Park is now finished and open to rave reviews by the public. It’s great to see everyone enjoying the project we worked on for so long! Since the park has opened I’ve been doing my best to get good pictures. The key is to get there at different times each day as the light changes every hour. I’ll be posting pictures of the final project in the next few posts
I design all of our signs to take full advantage of daylight. The textures, with the glazes are oriented to capture the highlights and the shadows are designed to create the illusion of even more depth. But we have to go further.
Many sign makers I know think mainly of the signs they create. A few try to incorporate some nice posts of perhaps a base. I like to go much further. The surrounding builds, structures and landscape are often part of our projects
Today our team finished the creative work in Cultus Lake Adventure Park. It has been an exciting and busy ten month journey. From the start we anticipated we would still be painting after the park opened it’s gates but through the hard work (and lots of overtime) of our crew we managed to finish two whole days ahead of the park opening.
The Cultus Lake Adventure project is massive by most shop standards. The project started back in the middle of September of last year. Now we are in the final week of production with the gates to swing open to the public next Saturday. That leaves five working days to complete our work. While we have been putting in about an hour of overtime per day and two saturdays of pure overtime the pace in the last weeks has been steady – not rushed.
