Making hot process shaving soap at home

I live tweeted my first attempt at making hot process shaving soap and created a twitter moment to capture the event.  It was a fun experience that took about half a day (for a rookie like me).  My wife and I had a lot of fun doing this and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try something new.  Here is my chronicle of the day’s events.

Note: For some reason twitter is showing the last post first, but everything else is in the correct order.
