A soap dish is a must have for your bar soaps. They allow excess water to drain which then enables your bar of soap to dry between uses thus extending the life and enjoyment of your beautiful soap. All soap dishes are handmade by trusted craftsmen like myself. These soap dishes are made of Radiata Pine and are free of knots and other defects that may mar soap and are sanded smooth. Each dish measures 3.5 in x 3.5 in. x .75 in. There are 4 slots in the top and 2 in the bottom creating intersections that form 8 drains, perfect for drying soap. Every dish has beveled edges making for a nice polished look, they do not come stained or finished allowing the purchaser to choose their own preference of oiling or staining or leaving them in their all natural state. Very sturdy construction ensuring longevity.
