Montpelier Shop Sign

July 30, 2020 by Charles Rollins

Well after two years of being in business at 21 Fork Rd in Montpelier, we finally managed to get our sign up! This is a locust tree fork with a curved cherry sign. The kind folks at Sign Here routed our signature letterhead into both sides of the sign for us, and then we used metallic gold paint to fill in the lettering. With a few little roof boards (a la mini kiosk ) and a piece of roofing copper, this puppy was ready to get scribed and fastened down to a big ol’ boulder! We had prepped that spot by digging a hole with an excavator and filling with crushed stone, which the boulder just sits on. We drilled a hole into the boulder and epoxied a piece of threaded rod, and drilled up into the forked post base for it to land on. There is a nifty little piece of hardware in there that rigidly ties the sign down to the boulder, so it’s good to endure anything that our lovely Vermont weather can manage to throw our way!
