Description

The Planchette, a French word for “little plank,” was a heart shaped piece of wood with wheels and a slot for holding a pencil or some other writing implement. The purpose of a planchette was to assist with the generation of automatic writing, or as a medium to encourage communication with the spirit world.
The planchette was embraced by spiritualists and reigned in popularity from the early 1850’s, through the Victorian Era, only to be supplanted by the modern Talking Board, the Ouija, starting in 1890.

SPECIFICATIONS:
Length: 8”
Width: 6 ½”
Thickness: ¾”
Height: 1 ¾”
Wood Type: Mahogany
Pyrography: Winged Hourglass, "Tempus Fugit"

This Planchette is made from solid mahogany, and an archaic Winged Hourglass, typically found on Victorian Era gravestones, is wood burned into the face. It features a pair of silver conveyor bearings, a stainless steel pencil fastener with an adjustable tightening wheel. Comes complete with a black pencil, a black drawstring bag, and a booklet containing a brief history and instructions for use.

This Planchette is handmade in my woodworking shop, Fringe Walkers Studio, just north of New Orleans. I use a few vintage Delta Rockwell saws, a host of hand tools, and a Colwood wood burner. I feel it’s important to be honest about the process we use to create a piece of art.
There is a great divide between home CNC designers, and people like me who still make everything by hand. I think both can produce fabulous results, but there should be a declared level of honesty between, mass-produced-by-a-machine-at-home, and individually made by hand. My two cents on ethics and technology in art.

Thanks for looking and best wishes on your ventures into the otherworlds.

I searched for very long time for the perfect mourning locket and finally found it! Excellent quality, Tracy made it to measure, perfect fit. Answered all my queries straight away. I have used it as a hair locket; I cannot express how much this means to me. Thank you Tracy x

I have been searching for over a year for a perfect chakra bracelet. Mainly, because my favorite chakra bracelet after 10 years broke off of my wrist. While browsing Etsy, I came across FringeWalkers Store and immediately knew this is where I was going to find what my soul was searching for. It's plain to see this piece of jewelry was made with love & wholesome intentions. The bracelet is stunning! The energy & vibrations radiating off of each stone is magical.
I Will definitely shop this vendor again. I was treated with the utmost respect, received great correspondence, order was shipped to me in a timely manner, the bracelet came packed in a nice pink silk bag and the gemstones really just sparkled & shined. One can tell this piece is made from high quality materials & phenomenal craftsmanship.
