Nice, how did you do the center?
Thanks Cass! So I have this random acrylic rod I've had for a while now. I just hit the frame with my Dremel until the rod sat halfway in. I then set it with 5 min epoxy, and then I cut it to the shape of the frame. I used masking tape to seal the edges and then filled the rest of the space with epoxy and then shaped it!

Thank you! It was a complete shot in the dark however unfortunately when I sealed it the clear coat did like a cracked effect on the surface of the plastic nothing I can feel with my nail but it's noticeable. So I resanded it this morning and did a wax finish this time around but the cracks are still visible but it's kind of cool looking lol

That really did come out nicely brother. Love the color of that handle material too. I know they shaped it that way at the bottom for hand hold but, every time I look at it I just see a nutsack 馃ぃ. Don鈥檛 get me wrong I鈥檇 still shoot it though.
Thanks man! I definitely like it but yes looks like one for sure haha.
