How to use Soap Log Splitter to cut Slabs of Soap


Why use a Soap Log Splitter

Soap slabs allow you to make larger batches of soap in a single production. When it comes to cutting them it can take a bit of work depending on the type of cutter you have. In this video I demonstrate my process of cutting a 30 pound slab into individual loaves with my log splitter. We then use the loaf cutter to cut the soap into bars.

My slab mold and log splitter were custom made but the maker no longer makes molds. Check out etsy for custom slab molds and log splitters if you would like to increase your production capacity.

I hope you enjoy and maybe even dance along.

    I’m upgrading my 10.2″x 2.7″x 3.1″ to a (20” x 15” x 3-1/2”) mold how much do you think I should double my measurements?

    put a piece of freezer paper or wax paper down before starting so the soap slides easier.

    • Zakia Ringgold

      peepla7 do you mean within the log splitter?

    • peepla7

      @Zakia Ringgold yes. A piece of freezer paper the width of the splitter….and the soap will slide easier cuz it breaks the cohesion between the soap and the wood

    • Zakia Ringgold

      peepla7 that’s a great suggestion. Thank you!!!

    I really enjoyed watching your video! <3 as I am getting in to soap making myself. A table vice would hold your cutter firm and in place while you are cutting your soap 🙂 I hope this helps two thumbs up.
