    hi,
    I enjoyed your antler video, I found it very helpful. That being said, please consider adding some well thought out discussion regarding bone dust. That smell of bone dust comment you made being a bad day at the dentist is airborne bone particles you are breathing. any antler, bone or nail dust inhaled will cause death with even a small prolonged exposure. The macrophages in the alveoli in your lung can’t process it and remove it so it builds scar tissue causing fibrotic lung disease… think mesothelioma.

    The dust coming off the antler when sanding is not something you want to breath in. I use a shopvac setup when turning. Also, when you use the antler to make pens, the center or marrow is beautiful when you impregnate with CA glue.
