Your bun end looks almost identical to mine when I first did it. There's nothing wrong with it. Instead of cutting the wood, I used sculpey, but it got brittle and broke off when I tapped the gaffi on the ground. I ended up getting metal studs/spikes from a local leather shop, and glued them around the bun. It gave it a great look, and never broke off again. I got them loose, but they are the same as the square studs on this belt: [image=http://popcdn-zoovy-1.simplecdn.net/img/beltiscool/W600-H400-Bffffff/4/4038_blk.jpg] Looking good!!!
