First Burl and First Acrylic

I made a couple of Maple Burl Big Leaf wine bottle stoppers for presents, here is my first attempt. I stabilized once with CA early on but it seemed to go smoothly after that. The learning continues. Really like this wood and the finished product. Finish is CA, can't tell if I left dust in the groove or if it's the polish I used.

Here is my first acrylic. My 6yr old daughter wanted a purple pen and we decided a pencil would be more fitting. Again, a learning experience, liked the finish product but I'm not sure I love turning acrylic, might just take some getting used too.

Thanks for looking, advice and criticism welcomed.
