Description:Making a wood grain in Illustrator can seem to be a daunting task. Not to fear – this is a relatively easy way to make a good-looking detailed wood grain using the warp tools.
Let’s begin by selecting the Rectangle Tool and draw a thin rectangle.
Using the Selection Tool now click on the rectangle and use Alt/Option + Shift (to keep it aligned) and click + drag a duplicate of your rectangle. Leave a little space (not much) between the rectangles.
Without doing anything else, repeat this function by using the Ctrl/Cmd+D as needed to give you rows of rectangles. More detail...
