The Way It Should Be

#Plankie Art by Welly & Cellie is a South African company that specializes in creating unique and bespoke kitchen and household products made from ethically sourced Knysna Blackwood. Our flagship product, the Braai #Plankie, is a handcrafted “braaiplank” that is perfect for serving food in a stylish and practical way. Our collection features a range of #Plankies, each designed for a specific purpose, including the Salt-block Braai #Plankie, Jumbo Braai #Plankie, Sushi #Plankie, Pizza #Plankie, and more.

At #Plankie Art by Welly & Cellie, we are passionate about providing high-quality, personalized products that enhance the braai experience for everyone. Our commitment to excellence is evident in our craftsmanship, attention to detail, and use of locally sourced Knysna Blackwood. We take pride in ensuring that every #Plankie is a unique and personalized product, engraved with the name of your choice.

Our company was founded with the goal of providing reliable and smart products that meet the needs of our clients. We believe that every client's product is special and strive to make the entire shopping experience as rewarding as possible. Our #Plankie range was born out of a coping mechanism during the COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020. The success of the first #Plankies sold through an online auction for charity inspired us to create a bespoke item range to meet the growing demand for our unique products.

At #Plankie Art by Welly & Cellie, we offer custom laser engraving and CNC services for everyday needs and wants. Whether you want to design and produce your own artwork or products, or you prefer to provide your own design, we are here to help you create a unique and personalized product that captures your special moments and transforms everyday objects into cherished memories.

The #Plankie range was originally exclusively made from African Rosewood, but due to its increasing difficulty to source and import, the company decided to introduce Kiaat into their range as an alternative wood for their products. While the founders have a deep appreciation for African Rosewood and its unique characteristics, they had to make the difficult decision to switch to a more readily available and ethically sourced wood.

Kiaat is closely related to African Padauk (both are species of the Pterocarpus genus), sharing its characteristics of being durable, extremely stable and easy workability. The wood is renowned for its great bug and termite resistance.

Although Kiaat has an impressive strength-to-weight ratio which, combined with its durability, makes it a very versatile, useful wood. Its heartwood color can vary from a light golden brown to a medium brown with a reddish or purplish tint. Grains can be straight, wavy or interlocked, its texture ranges from fine to medium, with a nice natural luster.

Corporate gifts, wedding gifts, and birthday gifts are an important part of our lives, and at #Plankie Art by Welly & Cellie, we offer the perfect gift for any occasion. Our unique and personalized #Plankies make for a thoughtful and practical gift that shows your love and appreciation for that special someone.

In conclusion, #Plankie Art by Welly & Cellie is committed to providing high-quality, smart, and reliable products that enhance the braai experience for everyone. We take pride in our craftsmanship, attention to detail, and use of ethically sourced local wood. Whether you are looking for a unique household item for yourself or a thoughtful gift for someone special, we have the perfect #Plankie for you.
