Nice mold

Mine came a bit separated and the dividers do not fit tightly and I did have to hand bend them straight but I was able to hammer it back together and when lined with freezer paper it makes it tight enough that soap doesn't leak out. I love the wooden cover! I did contact Brambleberry but it wasn't worth sending back the mold for the slight separation issue since I could fix it.

Great Mold

It's a great mold, I have the bottom insert which I cover in freezer paper. And I use the inserts with a bit of mineral oil (first time I used it I hadn't read the instructions and man it stuck good! I wish the inserts fit perfectly, but I have a 1/4" or so gap on the edge pieces and on the separators. I've just trimmed off the funny edge I get on the soaps. If the separators warp a bit I just bend them a bit, and or use warm water to adjust them. Overall it's a great mold and I wouldn't mind having a second one.

Recieved my mold today after a loong wait, didnt know the dividers werent going to be a perfect fit for the mold as there is a quarter of an inch gap between liner and dividers as if the dividers arent long enough. if dividers fit this mold wouldve had great potential disappointed :(

Hi Jakira!  I'm so sorry you were disappointed with this product! The dividers should be a perfect fit for this mold so it sounds like you might have gotten a defective set of dividers.   I will email you personally to resolve this issue!

Great, but no liner?

I inherited this mold from a friend going out of making soap. I plan on buying another, it is a beautiful mold, but I don't see the matching silicone liner? The other slab molds have them, but not this. I feel like that is a real shame. Having a matching liner would make this mold perfect.

Hi Vanessa! I'm so glad you love our 36 Bar Unfinished Birchwood Mold! Though, I'm sorry we do not have a matching silicone liner for this size of mold.  Thank you so much for your suggestion!  We'll definitely keep that in mind.  In the meantime, learn how to easily line your mold with freezer paper with our How to Line Any Mold blog post. I will email you personally to discuss this further!

Exceeded my expectations

I got this mold 2 days ago and couldn't wait to try it. I used the Peacock Swirl base recipe which uses a lot of olive. I normally pour 70 lb. batches at a time (haven't used olive oil for years), so reformulating and pouring this "small" batch was a huge change for me. Ok..back to the mold itself. It is very well made! I was really surprised at how strong the rabbit joints on the corners are and the wood used is #1 quality...no rough edges anywhere on it! When the 12 lb. batch didn't completely fill it to the 2" deep limit, I mixed another 6 lbs. and overfilled it by about 1/8", but in the end, the bars (though a bit challenging to get out of the mold JUST because I poured them so dang big), were gorgeous and I saved 12 to sell as big ol' fat bars (around 8-9 oz) and cut the rest of them in half yielding a total of 60 bars plus 19 more from another mold. Next time, I'll probably not pour so thick. The plastic dividers and side pieces were a snap to slide off the bars. LOVE IT!
