2lb Wood Loaf Mold:
Locally made from Baltic Birch plywood the sides and base have a shallow groove notched out for a perfect tight fit. The entire mold is held together with easy to use carriage bolts and wing nuts. When using you don't need to take the mold apart - just loosen the wing nuts and slide your soap out! The wood is unfinished and the mold should be lined with every use (which is easy to do with our custom silicone liner).
Mold dimensions (inner): 7-1/2" (l) x 3-1/8" (w) x 2-1/2" (h)

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Kristina! I'm so glad you love our 2 lb Wood Loaf Mold! Though, it does hold a full 32 oz (2 lb). Keep in mind if you make soap with 32 oz of oil you are then adding lye and water into it so it's going to be more than 32 oz! The amount of oils you need for a two pound batch is dependent on the oils you're using. Just run your recipe through the Lye Calculator then resize the batch until your "total yields" hits 32 oz!
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Chad! When a mold says its capacity it means total, that means the total yield of your recipe (oils, water, lye, etc) should equal 2 lbs. The oil weight for a 2 lb recipe is dependent on what oils you're using so there's not flat oil weight number I can give you to go by. The best way to formulate a recipe to fit into your mold is to start with percentages of the oils you want to use on our Handy Dandy Lye Calculator. Then for the oil weight choose a number close to your total yield. Once you press calculate it will give you your total yields, which will most likely be larger than you want for your mold. You can then play around with resizing the batch from that page by changing the oil weight until you hit your perfect number! I will email you personally to discuss this further.
