A quick Tutorial to get the chiselled look to wooden text.
For best results have the wood grain running vertically

 

PlugIns Needed:

Splinter

Texture Shader

Outline Object

 

I used BoltBait's Outline Object, but Pyrochild's will do the same as will Drop Shadow (with no blur) by KrisVDM

Question.

At what stage did the (unmentioned) text mask appear ? 

Also the version of texture shader in your screenshot is not the same as the one in the link provided :/

I thought I'd blanked them all out.  It was going to be there to show how to cut out the text, then I thought it wasn't needed.  Changed Screenshot

As far as I know I'm using the current one so it should correlate ?

 

@Seerose and @lynxster4 - very nice examples, I wasn't sure how versatile it would be.  And you've shown it is.  Apologies for not commenting sooner but computer problems got in the way
