I have done some chip and relief carving using a plunge router and chisels before but they always look very “craftsmanesk” not that that’s a bad thing but I am trying to make some modern cabinet panels and want a very specific texture to the relief. I have seen this before but of course I have no memory of where. I was wondering if anyone has heard of what this is called or know of any good tutorials on achieving this type of effect? The only thing I can find is this carved stone tile company with a similar texture.

Jim’s right. There are a lot of sand blasted red cedar signs around my neck of the woods.
