The best part is I actually really like it. And I work with professional shooters that like it too. So I don't think I did too bad

Oh I'm not trying to knock it. For one thing, that tree bark pattern as you called it, is much more original than anything I've ever seen.

I'm in the process of building a one piece grip for my revolver, and was thinking of doing vertical grooves for gripping purchase.

I saw it called the tree bark pattern. It does resemble the pattern though. I used the "teardrop" tool of my woodburning tool and used the flat side to make my straight lines. I tried using a digging technique to make lines but it wasn't giving me the appearance I wanted. So I switched to to straight lines and only digging in about a 16th of an inch and dragging it down about 3/4 of an inch. It worked for me.
