Odd occurrences and patterns often occur in the hobby of talking board collecting. One such pattern I noticed are that circular boards have a higher frequency across the Pond in the UK. While no such reason can be determined for sure, Calvin speculates it must be a cultural commonality or urban legend that makes people create these boards this way. Perhaps a lingering influence from table turning? This board was created from a simple pedestal table.The legs were removed and thrown away to save money on shipping to the states. The letters and numbers were individually hand carved and varnished. No planchette was found but perhaps an upturned shot glass was used. What do you think?

We have a couple of examples of "Talking Board in the Round" as designed by Raymond Buckland on display here at the Buckland Museum. Thanks for the information helping put it in a bit of perspective. He was English so this makes sense!
We use a glass much more than a planchette here in England. We also use round boards so that more people can fit around and use them.
I love Museum Mondays
I agree that a glass was probably used. I learned talking boards from a woman whose mother was from GB. She always used a shot or wine glass. AWESOME board!

What started as the basic Ouija Board Directions, sparked creative minds and became the New Board Rules many are considering today! 🌚🌛
Do you have your own unique directions and rules that you follow or do you even need any?
And you can get your own TBHS Board Rules T-Shirt @ www.tbhs.org/product/tbhs-board-rules-t-shirt/
(Directions are from the back of a circa 1917 William Fuld Board.)

I was going to use my board as a decoration for a small table and leave the planchette on top of it… Then I saw the T-shirt
I am frankly tired of the bad rap that boards get. Like Tarot/Oracle cards, pendulums, dowsing rods, they are nothing more than tools of divination, and should be treated with respect. I personally do not believe in “demons”, there are good spirits as well as bad, and proper precautions with any divining tools should be taken care of properly, and not be abused. Simple rules...light white candles, smudge before and after, say a prayer or incantation (according to what your beliefs are) for protection, before and after the ritual. Don’t ask for anything dumb, be reasonable. Play nice. And if one starts to feel uncomfortable with any negative vibes, end the session with the above mentioned. Make sure you are surrounded with good intentions, otherwise the negative will enter. I have used the board alone, which isn’t as bad as people portray. To each their own. Treat any tool for divination with respect, clarity and positivity.
Shipment to Australia?
Love the shirt
I need one of those shirts for sure!!
