Very nice! You are going to love using a wood mold. Remember to line it. Don't want the soap sticking.

You should use freezer paper, not wax paper. The heat from the soap reaction melts wax paper. It is found in the same place as wax paper and aluminum foil.

Yes, don't use wax paper. I've heard nightmares about getting it off the soap. Mylar is good. As are flexible cutting boards. Freezer paper as well if you are able to get that.

Very nice! I love the fact that when you build your own mold, you can make it exactly to your specifications. Make lots of lovely soap!
