    I don't want to hijack this post, anymore than normal..haha. I have a neat little mold idea, I stole off of the internet that has some cool, test mold features. I'll start a thread and post pics. I'm sure a handy guy like you, could throw one together in 30 mins.

    Those are far from being red headed step children molds. :)

    Besides my thoughts have always been, if it's working don't mess with it.

    Id have to measure it again because I really dont remember, but I 'think' its 3.5 x 2.5..I have a 1/2 lb tester recipe I use that fills it to the top..get about 4- 2.5 - 3.oz oz bars to play with. {depends on how thick I cut them really}I made 2 of them :)

    Hello everyone.

    I have found this video that seems to be a very good and relevantly quick lining method for a wooden mold.

    [ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAiRKIIKB_M[/ame]

    I think I will use this method as I am a newbie on soap making (I haven't cooked any soap yet - I'm still in the reading process.)

    How to make adjustable molds? Boyd Craven III has a $.99 Ebook on how to make 9# adjustable molds. I made them and they work great!

    I buy the cheap, clear, trash bag rolls and cut them in half. Cheap and easy!

    Freezer paper is expensive. Trash bags by the roll. Cut and set in.

    I like freezer paper and reuse it. Just gently scape any leftover soap off when it's still soft and you are good to go. I'm on batch #4.

    You can make one. get 3x6 high ends cut by home depot or your hubby. then cut the length you need.
    Drill holes on both ends. get two carriage bolts. and walla

    Easily. You won't have a problem with CPOP in a wooden mold.

    Hi. In the UK it's called grease proof paper and is available in all supermarkets next to the cling film and foil. I sometimes use the cling film to line my molds because it take ages with paper. I'm rubbish at making it fit!

    I use a trash bag cut up and wrap each side of my mold. My soap mold comes apart though.....I have noticed lots of people use ones that don't come apart
