    This one is from an apple tree in my garden that I chopped back last year . Tried a superglue finish this time . Need a lot more practice but like the finish

    Looks good to me buddy , liking the handle profile , ive only attempted a CA finish once before and it was a disaster, and the headache was not worth the effort.

    Give Try Tru oil a try for a similar finish the linseed oil in it really makes the grain pop whilst giving a glossy finish

    Nice one bud
    In all honesty just keep trying there’s a lot to learn and I find just cracking on and see what happens can lead to a nice surprise in the end . I’m still no where near where I want to be but really enjoying the journey.
    All the best fella
