A Quick Wood Grain Texture

Making a wood grain in Illustrator can seem to be a daunting task.


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.
