Making Painted Woodwork Look Like Real Wood?

Does anyone know how to make painted woodwork or doors to look like real wood? Looking for some way to do the older pieces of baseboard in other parts of the house. I have an older home and have replaced some baseboard with new wood.

They have "graining" tools at paint stores. Pieces of plastic that will leave a mark in the wood that looks like grain.

I saw this on an episode of Design on a Dime on HGTV. They painted closet doors brown and took a hair comb and combed the paint and then used their fingers to make knot holes.

I am a faux finisher and scenic artist by trade. If you email me I will tell you how to achieve this look.

I faux finished this treasure chest for a show at Seaworld where I work. Very easy to do.
