Good afternoon Colin,
I’ve stumbled across your web site after a long time of being away from
the good old Ouija Boards. I’m in awe of how many there out there, but
few if any really take my interest.
Colin, I’m interested in having a board manufactured for myself by
someone that is professional in the field and someone that you may know
or trust to do a good job. Being in the industry I’m sure you know the
best people all around the world.
Colin, I see there is a bigger style board on the market, the 601 from
memory…..yes? Well, this would have to be the closest to the board Id
like to have manufactured. I like the artwork and layout, but I’d like
the board itself to be bigger. I have a real problem with the planchette
being able to run off the board where the ‘Goodbye’ is located down the
bottom. My preference would be to expand the dimensions of the board,
keeping the original design and layout but to have enough room for the
planchette to stay on the board when it reaches the ‘Goodbye’ and not
have to run off onto the table.
Colin, if you know anyone that might be able to help, Id very much
appreciate it. I’m hoping to be able to get someone with a laser to be
able to etch the surface onto a nice piece of timber, which raises
another question………..what would be a good ‘spiritual’ timber to use as a
board…….not chipboard or pine, something that has some spiritual
significance to it. regards Michael
Good Morning Michael,
Tough question I guess I am not in the industry as such I do
have a keen interest in mass produced boards from years gone by.
Interesting as these boards are used on a daily basis .
Doing some research I would say any timber is OK but it
seems oak would be the chosen variety. I gather the method in this
decision would be that its usually a old growth tree and has history
. As a child I live next to a old oak tree and I was fascinated by
it. I caught up with it again about 7 years ago and strangely that
tree was still the same but I sat with it and touched it and it
bought back many great memories.
I did find a board for sale on ebay. in the USA usually they
are hand crafted.( I have No idea of quality or manufacture)
Interest too, is that a effective ouija can be anything
from a $2000 antique board to bits of paper cut out and scattered on
a table. I like a board that can be manoeuvrable I would not like
anything smaller than the William Fuld parker
brothers board the 601 that you like is the ideal size . I just
wish I had a tap to turn on to get more of these.
Good luck with it I hope that if anything comes to light I
will advise you.
