My wife needed something solid to put her soap on in the bathroom so I took a 2×4 and cut 3inches of the end of it and then ran it through my router table to put a round edge on all 4 corners top and bottom, then I ran it threw my table saw to get this result. I came up with this design on my own. I made it to have 4 legs to stand on and the soap block is one solid piece with no screws or glue. It is kinda neat when one wants to get creative and carve out a block of wood with a table saw and end up with something nice to use in the house. This soap block has been used by us for over a month and no splits from the soap or water run off. this block is made of a pine board.

thanks for looking .

Very nice! I make and sell handmade soap- so I also make (sometimes) wooden soap trays. Handmade soap needs to drain or it will dissolve away quickly. Bet your wife loves this little soap tray!

Ok so I just learned I got picked as top 3 for this log cabin soap block. Wow I wasn’t sure how every one would respond on this project and then finding out it was top 3 on the front page that just blows me away Thanks so much Lumber jocks.

So funny to hear your project was well received. Generally my generic rustic stuff seems to insult the sensibilities of many of our fine L’Jers. Glad you had a great and positive response! :)
