This project won’t mean anything to you unless you make soap or know someone who does. In fact, I wasn’t even going to post it, but decided that I would just for my own record.
Nothing fancy. This is a mold that will make a 2 pound soap loaf. It’s simple. You line it with freezer paper, pour your soap, then after it dries you loosen the wing nuts and you can easily get your soap loaf out.
Real simple to build instead of paying $35 for one online. The wood is from one of those 2’x2’ plywood Christmas tree bases that Home Depot sells at Christmas time. I got mine for $3 after Christmas. So with the wing nuts, carriage bolts and about half of the Christmas tree base it cost me $3.79 to make this.
I didn’t even use any special joinery, just a butt joint with glue. It’s not like it’s for anything fancy, just holding soap.
