Default Woodgrain backgrounds

What's your favorite? I know I want one, but I want to make sure I get one that really looks right to me. I know PTI has a set and Tim Holtz has one, are there others that are better?

I really love the one at Waltzingmouse Stamps for a very textured look: Woodgrain

And for a more open style, I also have this one from A Muse:

Hope you find one you really love

I really like the SU one and the Embossing Folder they have too.

StarvingArtistamps have one too - that's the one I went for when I was buying, but there are more to choose from now. Backgrounds Honey Comb and Woodgrain

I've often used this one for water, too, so it does double duty!

I got a large wood mounted one I really like from Stampabilities at Hobby Lobby (good price too since I could use a 40% off coupon)

I have the Stampin' Up! one and love it! I like that the lines are fine enough that the background doesn't overtake the whole card, but defined enough that they don't get lost. It's perfect for me.

I have this and love it! It gives a very natural impression. Also I like that with cover-a-card you can stamp in any orientation along any width of an A2 card base.

If you're buying this stamp then you might also want to get the mega mount. It gives a really nice coverage especially with big background stamps.

I think Impression Obsession makes the best background stamps (I have the wood grain and several others), followed closely by Hero Arts.
