Looks pretty good for your first try. Keep up the good work.

Looks nice, how do they feel?

Smooth as glass after I really polished them! I had some Hogue wrap around rubber grips on it and like them, but these are SWEET!

Not bad at all.

Those look very nice and you should be proud of your work. For a finish you should probably decide on the intended use of the pistol with them mounted. An Danish-oil finish can sometimes break-down under heat (like hands) but a polyurethane can seem "slickery". You might consider using some of the Birchwood-Casey rifle stock finishes; they are made for firearms use and their stains can be controlled easily. Good luck with your project!

Those look really nice. I think they might be a little too smooth for my liking though.
