Plugins used are:  Texture Object Rounder

                               Shapes found in @BoltBait's Plugin pack

                               Trail  and  Gradient Mapping

 

Note:  Another Plugin called Wobble could be used in place of the lines in step 3.

 

 

1.  New layer draw a rounded rectangle about 400 x 60 px and use the corner size to between 20 to 25.

5.  New layer and draw a filled rectangle for the 'shaft' at the top of the rounded rectangle.

 

6. New layer and draw a cone with the shapes tool, and place at the bottom of the rounded rectangle.

7.  Merge the 4 layers together.

 

8.  Rotate the rounded rectangle to angle -15% (Holding shift key and using the right of the mouse, should result in -15%.)

9.  Go to Effects > Height Map > Texture Object Rounder - with shaded on, at these settings.
