    All three look great. For some reason I keep going back to the last one though.

    I'm with Mohammad. All are nice, but the third one is my favorite.

    I agree with the others that all three look great! But, I'll take the first one!

    Really nice Chas. I like them all but the last one really catches my eye.

    I'd say I like the shorter form of the third and the colors of the first. Though that second really has some eye catching grain. Great job on all.

    Chas these turnings of yours make me want to buy everyone you can make and just collect them. I just love them all. You make em so darn perfect and cute and the designs you keep coming up with keep me wanting more.
    The first one would be my top pic but its the wood contrast thats doing this.

    If I could I would take all three. Nice work, maybe someday.

    I'm with Dennis, "I would take all three." However, number one is number one with me.

    Chas, you amaze me. If I had the skill, it would probably take me a month to make ONE of those; you just keep turning them out and they are all winners.

    Great work and a pleasure to view.

    Enjoy,

    I find the trick of keeping the segments so even pretty amazing. All three look really good but the first one "pops" more for me. I think its the Pau Rosa that's some gorgeous wood!
