I can’t help but brag. I’ve been using these molds for almost a year and I am thrilled with their performance. They are hand crafted from nature’s finest maple wood and have collapsing sides with an easy locking mechanism. These elegant molds make 5 to 10 pound batches of Cold Process soap. But the fun doesn’t stop there; using the proper lining, these molds can be used for Melt and Pour too! Get your 5 lb mold today for only $50 or your 10 lb mold for only $60.
We recommend wax paper lining for cold process soap and a plastic (saran wrap or plastic paint drop cloth) for melt and pour soap.
What a gorgeous mold!! I made myself a simple ‘log’ style mold years ago and love the sturdiness. My dream is to buy one like this that comes apart. Maybe later this year! These prices seem really great and worth a trip to Bellingham….
Alex, I use a rice cooker or slow cooker. They usually hold 5 to 10 pounds. The key is to buy one that has two or three settings (low, med, high) so that you can control the temperature and not scorch the soap.
Robin, I’m sorry you’re having trouble with the slab mold. I love the slab molds. If the plastic is warping, you can pour hot, hot water over the plastic pieces on a flat surface to get them to go flat again.
Heidi, a 2 pound mold sounds great! I’ll price one out and see if it’s feasible to do a 2 pound mold. I suspect it will barely be less money than the 5 pound one because the time and the fixtures remain the same for a 2 pound as a 5 pound mold.
Rita, Freezer and Wax paper should work equally well. =)
Why the wax paper recommendation for CP rather than freezer paper? Does it come out as smooth a freezer paper?
My all time favorite mold is my wood mold. Your’s look beautiful and easy to use. I wish it came in a smaller size…I’m trying to find a nice 2# wood mold.
I wish I would have got a log mold instead of the birchwood slab I bought last year. I thought the slab mold would eliminate my cutting problems but I haven’t been thrilled with the bars. I had to have that mold my mom even put it on her CC for me when my plastic log mold/cutter warped after use. I’ll have to put this one on my wish list.

If one were to use such a large mold for M&P soaps, how would you recommend getting that much bulk soap melted easily? Up until now, we've been making 1-2# at a time up in the microwave using pyrex measuring cups to hold the soap. 5# is a nice big leap up in scale. How do you do it so it seems easy?
