Another first attempt - this time burl and resin hybrid. It cut pretty easily but I also took a crack at CA finish. Annoyingly good stuff. Took some fiddling and learned some lessons - which I admittedly enjoy. Put a silvertip fan in it that seemed to fit the shape, plus holding back on some other knots for “not 1st attempts”. Interesting to make. The straight poly or straight wood is a bit simpler but after some practice it’s likely all the same.
