Did it harden?  "good steel" is dependent on it's use; a great steel for roses would be a terrible steel for knives---and vice versa.  Not knowing the alloy or how hot it was when you quenched it we can't say if your heat treat was great or terrible.

The lines are clean and it does not look excessively thick and the wood is not mangled in place; so if the alloy and heat treat are both appropriate then well done.
