This is an exact duplicate of the CASTLEROCK warning sign directing skiers to the Castlerock lift at Sugarbush Resort in Warren, VT.   In the photo above you can see me in the blue coat along with the 2019 head of Sugarbush Ski Patrol standing under a slightly larger version of this sign I made for the mountain to hang on the lift.

These signs are just over 14" x 31" and identical to the one I made for the mountain.  I can also make larger versions on a custom order basis.  I was granted permission from the mountain operations office to make and sell these signs

I made one these well known caution signs as a bit of a thank you to the mountain for their great 65 and over Boomer season pass. My wife and I are over 65 and are regular skiers at Sugarbush. I thought new Castlerock signs would be a great way to show our appreciation and also be a lot of fun to see every time we were at the Castlerock lift.

They are made from solid PVC and the engraved letters are painted with an exterior enamel.   As such the signs can be hung indoors or out.

If you are a Sugarbush skier you know this sign.  In the past I made a number of smaller versions as gifts that can be found in condos of friends around the resort. I'm now making these at 14" x 31" so people can have the exact same sign that is on the mountain.

Before the sale of my company and subsequent retirement I spent 25 years building up a national level woodworking business that made curved mouldings (www.curvedmouldings.com).  I have brought that same attention to detail to the making of these Castlerock signs.

There are usually a few of the signs on the shelf ready to ship.  If not then I will set up to make  more to ship within one to two weeks.   For those who want a larger 18" x 39.5" version of the sign that would be made to order as well.   This larger version would cost $275.00 plus shipping.  Other custom sizes can also be made.  Contact me to discuss details and cost.

How It's Made

Carving the Castle Rock Sign

Here the white PVC blank has been covered with
a blue paint mask prior to being carved on the
CNC (computer controlled) router.  The CNC then
carves all the graphics and letters exactly as they
had been drawn in my CAD/CAM software.

After the carving process the signs are ready to paint.
There are fewer red areas so they get painted first.   Then all those red
sections get masked off and the black paint is applied.

Here is the sign after the paint mask has been removed
and cleaning up of excess paint has been
completed.  Next up will be cutting the sign to final
size and then some sanding of the PVC prior to packaging.
