Description 

Vertical Wood Mold: Made with the same care and craftsmanship as our wildly popular Baltic Birch Molds, these exquisite molds are hand crafted here in Bellingham, Washington. The vertical style allows for unique and creative swirling and layering techniques that will wow your friends and customers.

Our vertical mold holds approximately 4 pounds of soap and creates a soap log that is 3 3/8" x 2 3/8" x 12". Cleverly held together on one side with 6 wingnuts, sliding out your finished soap is a breeze. Also includes an optional center divider for creating unusual looking split swirls. Liners fit snugly together so lining your molds is not necessary but the liners are not snug enough to work with melt and pour so we recomend cold and hot process soap only with this mold.

We recommend hand washing all of your molds and pieces to make sure they last a lifetime

 The Mold includes:

Two 13" x 4" side liners
Two 13" x 2 1/2" side liners
One center divider
One grooved liner for the bottom of the mold
Six wingnuts
One U-shaped pin (to keep the middle divider centered)

good quality
This mold is a wonderful edition to my ever expanding soaping supplies. The reason it isn't a 5 star is because as some have stated it is a pain to unmold. The Mylar does work however as stated before it makes swirling impossible. Wish the inside was lined with silicone or something to make it an easier unmold.

Very Frustrating to Unmold
I have made quite a few batches with this mold. About 90% of my batches have been very difficult to remove. The liners stick and it is very frustrating and sometimes painful to try and slide off the liners from the hardened soap. I've waited between 24 hours to a few days to try and release the mold and still have difficulties. One batch of soap took me weeks to get out. I have a batch sitting on the counter now with two sides off and two sides stuck. I am just tired of fighting with it. On the positive side, the vertical mold is unique and makes fantastic swirls in CP soap. It's a nice mold to have, I just wish the liners were thiner like quilter's no-melt mylar. I used that once to line this mold and the soap came out in a jiffy (but then the middle paddle doesn't fit, so you can't use it to swirl the soap).

Vertical mold
If you get this, the idea is great and a lot easier than cardboard, but make sure when the middle piece is pushed down into its slot, the hole for the pin is lined up. I had to lift the middle piece divider slightly to get the pin in. When I poured the divider shifted, as it is difficult to pour two batches at the same time. If the divider sat firmly in the notch at the bottom, I think you could pour one side at a time. This came off the soap great but the bars were kind of ruined. I cleaned and put the mold back together and drilled a new hole on each side, I just use a brad nail in the other side, now it sits firmly and is stabilized on both sides. I will try it today with maybe some lemon lime soap. Also be sure to not make your trace too thick, the holes are small and the more liquify your soap the better for you, especially if you incorporated something like petals. I would buy again but if you get one modify it before you use it.

I’m so glad that you were able to get this to work for you. I’d love to see photos! I’m emailing you to get them. We’re always interested in how to improve our products and this is one of our favorite molds (the Palm Free Swirl is a perpetual favorite design and recipe around here) and it sounds like you have a great idea! We’ve done several variations of pin and stabilization options for this one and it sounds like you have a great idea. Look for my email. Thank you for your feedback, and for being a customer.

Vertical Wood Mould
Recently, I purchased this wonderful vertical wood mould and was amazed as to it's quality of workmanship. It's built to last! Since I live in Canada, the only draw back was the shipping cost which was almost equivalent to the price of the mould. After trying it, I've found it's best to line the mould with parchment paper. Otherwise it's difficult to release the soap from the side liners. On the plus side: no need to wrap your mould and you get a 'clean' cut on the layers. Overall, I would definitely rate this one, a BUY!

Great results first time (and every time)!
This is a great product. Sure, depending on your trace there may be a little leaking onto the mold but it's very minimal and not an issue at all. This is an excellent mold and produces great results! Highly recommend!
