    Create a new document in Photoshop with the following settings:

    Step 2

    Double click on the background layer and hit OK to unlock it. Now right-click on the same layer and select Blending Options. Here we will add a radial gradient going from a light grey to a darker one:

    Step 3

    Grab the Rounder Rectangle tool, set 40 px for the radius and create a polygon. The color is not important at this stage since we will apply layer styles later.

    Step 6

    Paste in the wooden surface texture and place it in a layer above the polygon’ s one. Rotate the texture too. In the screenshot below I reduced the wood opacity to show you the polygon position.

    With the wooden texture selected, ctrl+click on the polygon vector mask to select its pixels. Then press the “add layer mask” button at the bottom of the layers window. The screenshot below will help you understand better this step:

    Step 8

    Select the wooden texture layer and switch the layer blending mode to soft light. This will make visible layer effects we applied to the polygon. Then apply the sharpen filter (Filter>Sharpen>Sharpen) to enhance wood details.

    Repeat the same process to create another stick. The only difference is the polygon color overlay, that is a lighter brown (#d5864d)

    OK folks. We can stop here with the tutorial. The rest of the type treatment is the result of the same technique applied several times. Now you can create your own wooden text effect!
