How To Make Your Own Wooden Soap Mould

Since I began making soap, I’ve been wanting a wooden soap mould. I could have easily went out and bought one, but the idea of making my own felt more appealing. There are tons of DIY wooden soap mould tutorials online, from super easy to kind of fancy.

For my first time, I stuck with simple. I bought all the materials I needed from Home Depot for under 20 bucks, and they cut the wood for you. Sweet deal! All I had to do was come home and put it together.

All You Need Is This:

~Craft wood cut into 3 pieces of 3 1/2 inches wide by 19 inches in length

~You also need two end pieces cut to 3 inches

~2 carriage bolts 1/4 inch by 5 1/2 inches

~2 wing nuts

~5/16 drill bit

~Sandpaper

~Wood glue

Step 1

Sand the edges and measure each end of the long side pieces of wood for the drill holes. This is where you'll put the long screws. 

Sand The Edges

Measure 1 1/2 inches down and 1/4 inches in on both ends and mark for the drill holes

Step 2

With your new drill bit, line up the 2 side pieces and drill through

Line Up The Pieces And Drill Through. Add an extra piece underneath so the drill doesn't drill through the flooring

After drilling, glue it together. I bought this express drying one which worked great!

Step 3

Gluing it together 

Glue the edge of the bottom piece and line up the side piece to attach

Do the same for the other side, I placed the two end pieces in-between for support

Step 4

After it’s dried insert your bolts, attach the wing nuts and your 3 inch end pieces should tuck in nicely on each end. You could get a third end piece cut if you want to make two different batches at once  

Insert the bolts and secure them with the wingnuts

Step 5 Make Soap

Now you can line it with parchment paper and try it out
