Those look great! I've been wanting to order their liners for a long time but couldn't decide on which size batch I'd like to scale down to. My molds I have now just make too much soap. May I please ask what your inside dimensions are of your wooden log molds and how many lbs your liners are listed as so I order the right ones?

They are nurture molds and I only got the liners to save on postage.

I got the 7.5 lb log mold
18" x 3.5" x 3.5"
This is actually 457 mm x 84 wide x 88 high.
This silicone is about 4mm thick.
I make a 1.8 kg mix and the soap is about 65 mm tall.
The timber surround is internally 465mm x 91mm wide x 105mm high.

I also got the 4.5lb tall and skinny
11" x 2.5" x 4.5"
Internally this is actually 280 long x 65 wide x 115 high
This silicone is about 5mm thick.
The timber surround is internally 291mm x 75 wide x 130 high.

As you can see the dimensions are not the exact dimensions on the website. The width of the 7.5 log is only 84 mm wide not 88.
So take that into account when you order.
But they are perfectly square all around.

They are a great silicone, thick, shiny and flexible. Easy to wash. Really impressed.
