What finish are you using on these John? Maybe try some honey maple stain on one of the pine versions?

As with Chuck and Stick, my vote is for either the top or the bottom one but as has been said all are well beyond acceptable.

I like the bottom one. More contrast to bring out the details.

It is easy to choose one when looking at all three, but put them in separate rooms and they all look good!

Top 2 are 1" maple and the bottom is 2 pieces of 2 x 6 construction grade pine glued together, at about 1/4 the cost of the maple. But the maple cuts cleaner and shows detail a little better.

I think the stain has a lot to do with it, but I hate to use dark stain on maple.

Thanx for the feedback.

Nice job on all of them! I like the font of the top two, but the color of the third. But as they sit, I would probably pjck the top one

I'm sure there's a few of us that could hang one of those and call it "fitting".
