Strange Views

Part of the challenge of technical drawing or drafting is learning to show solid objects in flat drawings. A common method is to use orthographic projections to show the edges of an object with front, top, and side views. Here's an example, and two stumpers. The puzzle is to study the three views and reconstruct the solid objects they show. All surfaces are flat, though not necessarily at right angles to each other. There are no hidden edges. Hint: each object can be carved from a solid block with just one or two straight cuts!
