The current version is out of 1/4" white acrylic, cut in two pieces and glued together. The design was improved to use wider slots to dry off better; the thicker material helps with this as well.


The first version lasted for >5yrs. It was cut out of 1/8" clear acrylic. That thickness turned out to not be strong enough, and the clear acrylic always looked dirty. Also, the slots were too close together for the spaces between to dry, so the soap didn't stay as dry as needed.
