The Artist - Peter Poanessa

Keene Signworx has been creating exterior and interior signs for businesses and residences for more than 12 years throughout southwestern NH and New England. As a small business owner, Peter was very cautious while he was selecting a router to purchase. Peter had done his research and was looking for a CNC machine that could handle all of the intricacies of the style of work he creates. Peter was doing a lot of hand carving at the time and wanted to automate the labor intensive carving work, so he could spend more time selling and doing detailed hand carved pieces to increase the value of his work. Using his Precix CNC router, he is able to do more detailed work in less time making more money.

His Work

You may have seen this sign on the cover of the United States Sign Council calendar, where he won 1997 Best of Show Award.

Peter regularly cuts 1.5" Redwood and signfoam on his machine. He also works with other materials including aluminum, brass, and a wide variety of plastics.

His Tools

Peter uses the Precix 9100 Industrial System. Like many of our customers, he started with a CNC SIgnmaker model and upgraded to the CNC Industrial series.
