Default Curved texture pattern

It took me a bit to figure it out for Mike Rintz. But I found a way to do a textured panel that curves. I had done a Aspire video using the same technique, but the pattern was going in a straight line. The trick to getting the lines to curve was to draw a curved line, then copy it and place one above and one below the lines I wanted to curve then use the distort tool. I have a file for any of you that want to see how to do it. This file uses a .5 ball nose for the carving. Also the file has 2 options, 1 for a fluting cut and the other for a texture cut.
