Texture Question

I’m trying to create a chair in scketch up.see attached cross brace and leg. When I use the paint bucket on the cross brace, I can use texture position and the effect is very real. However texture position is not available for curved surfaces (the leg). Is there a method for getting realistic surfaces on curved surfaces. You help is appreciated

Texture Example.skp (2.1 MB)

(1) Turn ON hidden geometry. (View menu)
(2) Soften/Smooth the curved surface first using the Eraser Tool with the CTRL key modifier, on the hidden lines.

(Pay attention to the statusbar. It will tell you what the options for each tool is.)

There are other threads here that covers this nicely.
