How do I show "chip carving" on wood in my model?

I’m trying to show the texture on a curved group in my model. Importing the texture and then painted it doesn’t show the detail I’m looking for. This is the technique I’m try to achieve. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

“Carved” * sorry

Just be aware that actually modeling the geometry is likely to require a lot of geometry and may make your model sluggish to work with.

Thank you so much for the quick response. The group is a curved piece and subtractive modeling seems very time consuming unless theres a way I’m unaware of. I think I might have to make my own seamless texture. Thanks for the help!

Yeah I’m realizing that 5 minutes in to try subtractive modeling. Thank you!
