I’ve used a small spring, like a spring from an ink pen, to simulate small bug tracks. Uncoil the spring into some random pattern, and hit it with a hammer in the top. The forum post that Granite linked to above also has some great distressing tips.

I’m not a big fan of the grooves in the table top. The last table I built, out of knotty alder, was glued together flush to make a nice big, flat top.

-- People say I hammer like lightning. It's not that I'm fast -- it's that I never hit the same place twice!
