But I have seen those who work harder at not doing it right than if they just did it right! Now that fries my hide.

Sounds like time to take the dogma out for a walk!

Wood grain is really simple,you can buy a roller with sculptures already cut for an oak look just spray the beige or yellow then the brown drag the tool across it makes the oak look ,but most of us use a sponge or old T shirt to me works best ,when you get the pattern you want just clear it your done

The Burl wood like this panel to me is probably the hardest,,spray beige let it dry where as the oak you work it wet the pecan color then splatter black or Dark brown when almost dry use a still grush drag a pattern then I use a t shirt and work on the drag marks,then I sprayed a Light coat of clear when dry I lettered control letters in white and Ranger in Gold ,,then progressive coats of clear ,,I have about 6 hours in this panel

This guy I worked for learned from Craig Clemmons a master at it. He did a fiberglass boat once that was entered in a classic boat show in Lake Tahoe and no one knew that it was fiberglass! He was an absolute master!

I got out to the garage and did this vintage motorcycle horn grille for my brother.









Modified a screw driver pictured next to a super modified one from years ago.
