Trying to work out the "growth rings" part of the the paper, and while the words
sound reasonable, translating that into equations and code is --- less

Thankfully, due to the lessons of the past million projects, I can at least come
up with workable POV-Ray equivalents that serve the same purposes.

At least the pattern looks like wood, although the texture and finish are
obviously not even close - since that will rely heavily on later work.

hdr light probes really change the colors compared to a point light source and
sky_sphere!   :O

At least it looks somewhat like a cheap 4x4 post I might see at a big box store.
