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". One side of the mold slides up, allowing you easy access to your soap. 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)

Update: When it works it's a 5
I love the idea and love the look of so many of the soaps you can make with this mold. I have made three batches using this mold: a continuous swirl; a half and half; and a half circle on either side. The only one that went smoothly was the half and half. I have found that one main problem with all the batches have been that when I line the mold it is too snug, but if I dont line the mold then it isn't snug. It is so hard to fit when lined that it has gotten stuck and took multiple people to get unstuck. Then when I don't line it it leaks, a lot. Today I did the palm free type twirl: I lined all but one side thinking this would be a good middle ground. Major leakage. Multiple bars of soap worth. Not only that, it is so tight that I cant swirl the middle around and around. I think there is something wrong with my mold. Idk, but it is frustrating. Update: Just unmolded the swirl. The mold is now literally moldy and green in spots from the heat and moisture of the leakage.

Leaks like crazy
I love to make the twist with this mold, but I hate how badly it leaks. I have the old model, with the wingnuts. Even with the washers, they still bite into the wood, but do not help to achieve a tight fit. A deciding factor to get this mold was that it didn't need t be lined, but that is not the case. You MUST line this mold, or you will have soap everywhere. I would give 2.5 stars, because I like the swirl effect, but hate that it leaks, and feel a bit deceived with the original description.

Hi Tiffany! I'm sorry you felt deceived by the original description of this mold. We love the Vertical Wood Mold! In our tests and recipes we found the inserts fit snug enough in the mold to not need lining though we like to line with freezer paper just in case, especially when working with a thinner recipe.

I have had some trouble with this mold, it is hard to take the middle peace out to swirl it. I have also had trouble with the pieces sliding around slightly, plastic pieces do not fit

Hi Colleen! I'm sorry you were having trouble working with this mold. We love the Vertical Mold and have made so many fun designs as seen in our Vertical Sandalwood Vanilla Soap, With a Twist! and Making Sunshine Cold Process Soap tutorials. I will email you directly to help troubleshoot!

Love it!
I'm a hot process junkie, & accept that I'm making life hard on myself by doing hot process in this mold. The problem I have is that when glopping the hot process in, it tends to shift the center divider at the bottom. I didn't notice this on a batch & got an off-center design. Now I only fill one quarter at a time, & use a wooden spoon to shift the center divider back into place if it gets out of line. I may use the other commenter's suggestion of drilling an extra pin support at the bottom to help with this. If you get pictures from them, let me know!!! You have to bang this mold down hard to get all the air pockets out from the hot process glops. Luckily, this is a well-made mold and is holding up well to my abuse. Be sure to wear goggles to protect your eyes from flying glops(!) For sticky liners, I cut up old plastic grocery bags & tape them in which makes removal & cleanup a breeze. Plus, by taping the top back to the wood mold, it holds the liners from falling over.

I was very excited to try out my vertical mold. I didn't line the mold with freezer paper since it was not supposed to leak. However, the first time I used the mold it leaked.

Hi Mary! I'm sorry your mold leaked. While the Vertical Wood Mold's liners fit snugly so it doesn't always need to be lined. We definitely recommend lining the mold just in case! This is because depending on the thickness of the soap batter leaks can happen, especially if you have a thinner recipe.
