How to Make a Planchette For Ouija Board Coffee Table

Creating a beautiful ouija board coffee table is a great way to show your appreciation for the mysterious board game and its history. Adding a planchette to your coffee table is a great way to enhance the aesthetic of your room and to actually use the board. If you’re ready to take this project on, here’s how to build a wood planchette for your ouija board coffee table.


  1. Gather Your Materials: To make your planchette, you’ll need wood, screws, nails, a saw, sandpaper, a drill, paint, and paint brushes.
  2. Cut the Wood Base: Measure out the size of the base you want to use and carefully cut it with a saw. Use your sandpaper to smooth all the edges of the cut wood.
  3. Assemble the Wheels and Pedestal:Use the saw to cut four small triangular wheels and a small square pedestal. Connect the wheels to the base and grow the pedestal to the center of the base with screws and nails. Make sure everything is tightly attached.
  4. Paint the Planchette: Choose the colors you want to use for your planchette and start painting. To add a bit of style, we recommend creating a custom design on the planchette before applying the colors.

Bonus Tips

  • For extra flair, consider adding some decorations, or even glitter, to your planchette.
  • Make sure the wood is properly sanded before you start painting to ensure that the colors come out well.
  • Before using the planchette, make sure all the pieces are securely attached to avoid it coming apart while playing.

Creating a planchette for your ouija board coffee table is an easy and fun project that will create an immersive atmosphere in your home. With the right materials, a bit of time, and some patience, you’ll have an excellent addition to your ouija board-inspired coffee table.
