DMFWood1, DMFWood2, DMFWood3, DMFWood4, DMFWood5
The scaling in these definitions is relative to a unit-sized object (radius 1).

Note: woods are functionally equivalent to a log lying along the z axis. For best results, think like a woodcutter trying to extract the nicest board out of that log. A little tilt along the x axis will give elliptical rings of grain like you would expect to find on most boards. Experiment.

Wood textures:

DMFWood6
This is a three-layer wood texture. Renders rather slowly because of the transparent layers and the two layers of turbulence, but it looks great. Try other colors of "varnish" for simple variations.
DMFLightOak
Is this really oak? I dunno. Quite light, maybe more like spruce.
DMFDarkOak
Looks like old desk oak if used correctly.
EMBWood1

Rosewood
Sandalwood
