Nice! When I first started soaping my hubby made me a couple that look so similar to yours. Instead of latches to hold the sides together I used velcro. I put a 1" hook piece on the outside of the long ends then use one long piece of the loop to keep it together. Works pretty good and is really easy to handle but if my batter is really thin when I pour I have to use clamps to hold it together more tightly to avoid leaking.

Have fun with your new mold!

Thank you! I'll have to remember that trick

very cool. how much soap will it hold?
About 9lbs, but I plan to only make about 6lbs in it at a time for slighty more slender bars
