    Default A couple of first

    Two first for me. My first time pouring my own resin blank.I would have been better served If I went with one color and didn't try to make a hybrid blank for my first one. Also My first time trying to a Behive shape.

    I guess it is OK for a first. Probobly would have looked better in solid colors and I am not happy with the spacing of the coves.

    Really, not too shabby at all for the first go at it. It'll only get better.

    I agree with Bob. I’d be happy if that were my first go at it.

    Show us what it looks like after you instal the knot.

    It may never get a knot. that all depends on if I like it any better after sanding and finish.
