-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

dendrite is a mineral. Talc is a form of soap stone. Sometimes these two form together, and you end up with dendritic talc. I had this stuff for about 8 years. I made my mom for mothers day a bowl made of this, and resent cleaning came up with these small pieces. I got it over the internet but not sure were. I learned about this from wood magizine.

They are great little turnings! Have very nice shapes that I’m sure Mom will love them.
