Until 10 seconds ago, I didn't know that there is not only the Apple, Inc. computer called Macintosh, but also an Malus domestica fruit variety of that name. I mean, things like “new car” FOs are a thing too, and I'd be not very surprised if someone sells perfumes/FOs/diffuser essences to Steve Jobs disciples, which remind them from camping in front of the Apple stores to get the latest iPhone.Macintosh Apple FO from Candle Science which smells like a lovely fresh apple
There's a MacIntosh apple fragrance? We had a MacIntosh apple tree on our property where I grew up! Our tree produced a lot of small apples. I didn't like them raw as much since we had other apple varieties that were less tart, but they were my little sister's favorites. They make the best applesauce, and their skin is so red it dyes the applesauce pink, so we could always see which jars of applesauce were MacIntosh. I'm very tempted to make a MacIntosh apple soap for the sake of nostalgia!
I just had my saw out for a different project, and after everything was all put away I thought about making soap molds. *smacks forehead*In soapy news, I've finished my cross cut sled for the table saw! (Bear with me...)

Now that I can get much more accurate cuts, I'm all set up to make my own custom soap moulds! (See? )
But first I practiced with a simple little project and made myself a beveler to my preferred spec. There's one straight blade which I can adjust for depth of cut from about 2mm to 5mm, which seems to be plenty, in testing. I also ground out a second blade to make a roundover profile with shoulders, and I like it a lot!

These ancillary projects are great for doing soapy things without actually generating new soap!
Can I put an order in for one of these? Please & Thank You! Although, I would really like to purchase your detailed instructions!!! lol! I really LOVE the rounded beveled edges! You are very skilled!!!But first I practiced with a simple little project and made myself a beveler to my preferred spec.

He seemed pretty pleased with them, a general win, I believe!
I also took delivery of some new FO and EO samples from Poland, including a bread scented one which is surprisingly convincing! No idea what I'll use it for, I just ordered it from pure curiosity...
