Great job mate well done. Definitely get some stickers printed up, it really adds and you can have fun designing a cool layout.

Lovely job excellent first attempt with regard to shine you can by a specialist finishing paper and  polishing paper.

Thanks for the feedback and the tip, I'll look into that.

I think it was G3 poss 4, a couple of small knots on the face and heartwood, but it's not a bad bit of willow at all. I thought I'd posted a pic of the face, so I'll try and put one up. Honestly mate apart from some DIY I'd not tackled anything before and my day job is Sales, so I'd say just give it a go.

Second attempt here, 2lbs 10oz inc scuff and shoe goo toe. 63mm spine and 35mm edge. Decent enough G2 which picks up really well and pings nice

Would appreciate any feedback here good or bad, as just trying to improve and get better with each attempt. So any advice, guidance or feedback is really helpful. Cheers.

I like the rounded toe on bat 1. Unfortunately I can't see the photos of bat 2 so can't comment except to say well done for keeping going! :)

Thanks @JK Lewis. Can anyone else see the photos? They're showing for me?

Similar here.  I can see the third pic of the new bat, but the two above it have "image not found or removed" in their place.

Agree the rounded toe looks better. 
Second bat looks to have really thin shoulders, but might just be the angle if it's 2 10.  Does the bottom of the handle have a flat edge where it meets the shoulders, or is that just a trick of the light?
Looks well finished though - great job!
