Very, very nice. Where can I get dendritic talc? I couldn’t find a source using Google.

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.
