Wood grain vectors

I'm looking for a source for wood grain vectors. I've been hunting via google, there's a lot out there but I haven't found anything that looks reasonably realistic. Any help is appreciated.

Masking issue

I have a request to carve trail signs with the following specs. Trex type material for long life, wood grain appearance, lettering painted. I cut a sample on wood grain Trex with a paint mask. I wasn't surprised but I was disappointed that the mask did not hold up well when cutting the lettering. I'...

Another suggestion. Use a round nose bit and run a profile tool path on a single straight vector.

Hi Phil,

Re: My latest Cribbage Boards

BWW808, no offense to the Texas Longhorns fan intended. I am curious as to how you added that image to the cribbage board. It a really cool effect. Is it an inlay? It almost looks like a shadow.

Re: My latest Cribbage Boards

Well done. I'm curious about the image that looks like a shadow of a mustache on the cribbage board. Can you provide some details on that, it looks really impressive.
