Soap Mold Supports and a Trivet

I have dreamed of making some kind of support for my silicone soap molds.  They go wonkey when they are full of soap, so I support them with jars and kitchen gadgets until the soap sets up.  I have designed several in my head, but never made any.  I purchased a few different sizes of boards and I finally made a prototype or two.  This is what I came up with:

I am not a woodworker, so don't expect perfect.

I hope these help my wonky molds to behave.

New crocheted trivet hand spun and hand dyed using Shetland wool.  I used the microwave to dye the trivet after it was made.  The trivet was varied in cream colors so the dye came out that way too.  I really liked the way it turned out.  My sister made the little jewelry decoration on the edge.

Thank you for viewing.  Dawnie
