I like the second one. It is cleaner. Also I think the lettering is nicer on the oval. It is clearly an E, D and J. The J on the first one is weird looking. It looks like a check mark.
Personally I think the word "handcrafted" is a little over used and cliche. Every bearded butthole screwing legs to pallet wood calls his stuff "handcrafted".
You work speaks for itself. No need to tell the world it is handcrafted. Just my opinion.
I was at a restaurant recently. I sat at huge walnut trestle table. It was beautiful. Then I noticed once of the trestle legs was badly cracked. I looked a little closer and found that it was improperly designed. The trestle legs were quite wide (about 10") and the builder glued a board all the way across all 10". It wanted to move but could not. So it cracked.
This really has nothing to do with your table. But, with this rustic trend, I see more and more stuff built with expensive materials but built incorrectly. Kind of pisses me off.
