    Actually, I've been through a few. Made these in clear, black and now cream, because I wasn't too fond of pure white with the bird logo.

    I like the cream my second choice is the black I also think the cream with the thunderbird graphic would have been a nice touch.

    It's interesting the way the wood changes color with between the 2 pictures, likely due to the lighting. I like them both. I wonder if the thunderbird graphic is available as a sticker or decal. I agree that it adds a nice touch.

    Thank you. I just don't have any way of re-creating the bird logo. I do like it plain however.
