Above, I used our 2 pound log mold with wingnuts and lined it with butcher paper (which is a must). Here are the instructionsfor lining your mold.These molds are locally made (in Bellingham, WA) from Baltic Birch plywood. The sides and base have a shallow groove notched out for a perfect tight fit. The entire mold is held together with easy to use carriage bolts and wingnuts. When using you don’t need to take the mold apart – just loosen the wing nuts and slide your soap out! The inner mold dimensions are 7″ x 2.25″ x 3.25″ and holds about 2 pounds of soap.
To cut my colorful rebatch soap, I used our Wooden Cutter for the 2 and 4 pound molds. This mold comes with the scraper/cutter below and a wooden removable spacer that allows you to cut 4 ounce bars instead of 5 ounce bars. In the picture above, I chose to cut my soap with my kitchen knife (Shhh. Don’t tell my husband).
Other cutting options: The scraper/cutter or the (oh so popular) crinkle cutter.
My goal was to create a tutorial strictly on molds and cutting but my soap turned out super cool (if I do say so myself). I used our basic rebatch base with our Purple, Blue and Canary labcolors. Here’s a tutorial on basic rebatch if this soap has inspired you. PS: If you want to try rebatch, now is a perfect time since it’s on sale for a limited time.

I have to thank Sherrieg for reminding me: I bought silicone baking sheets for that purpose but then forgot why I bought them. *sheepish grin*
Fun soap! I find that wax paper is too thin for lining my molds, so I used a combo of thin silicone baking sheets and parchment paper. Just thought I'd share!
Yes, I love these little molds – this 2 pound size is perfect me and my experimental ways.
Love the colors in this batch. Saw your quote in Inc. this month!
This is a really nice looking mold, and I love that it's locally made in your area. Your rebatch soap is very cool!
I have the crinkle cutter I got at a thrift store! It was a great score. I need to get a wooden loaf mold like this. The ones you have at brambleberry look very well made.
