Thanks!  I do a lot of scenes with rough wood, so I've developed quite a few
techniques.  This one was a lot of fiddling with pigment functions to put the
dents in logical places.

One of the things that really helps with this is having a version of
f_rounded_box that more accurately returns the distance of a point from the
surface of the box.  That allows me to simply add/subtract other pigment
functions with a depth I can model to the shape function in the isosurface.
It's much slower than the built-in f_rounded_box, but gives more controllable
results.
