I'm actually needing help figuring out the interior dimensions for a 1lb soap mold and for a 2lb soap mold. My little shrivelled brain tries to detach from my spinal column when I try to do the math. If anyone can help me, I will build a shrine to you and worship it every morning when I wake up.

Oh wait, you said interior dimensions? That's the easy part that I can do! Figuring out the thickness of the wood and whatnot is the part that hurts my head. Although I usually work with much bigger molds, so not sure you really want a 4 inch long mold....

i generally only make one or two pound batches, but I want to have a decent looking bar and I kinda thought something permanent would be cool, instead of scrounging for milk containers   Cheesy
