I like the edge treatment on the first two.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Put the camera on a tripod.
Tack sharp pictures best show off your work.
It's worth the extra effort.

The bolt thread used by cameras is easily found. You could make a 'monopod' - simply a stick with the bolt on the end. That would help steady the camera considerably.

Good job all around,including the edges.
My only comment is that the "t" and the "m" in the second one doesn't seem to go with the rest of the stylized font. Just a first impression,like covering up a mistake? maybe I am just picky.
