TEXT TUTORIAL:
Select your Rectangular Select tool & make a Rectangle.

Now select the Bucket Fill tool & change the Foreground Color to b0a090.
Now fill the rectangle with that color.

Now have it centered on your GIMP Document.

Now I would like you to right click on the new layer & click on Add Alpha Channel.
Right after you've done that go to Filters/Noise/HSV Noise

Your contents must be.
Holdness: 1
Hue: 3
Saturation: 35
Value: 62
Image

Now go to Filters/Blue/Motion Blur
Length: 42
Angle: 271
Image

Now add a gradient to the top and bottom of your rectangle.
Image

Now copy and paste the rectangle, 1px next to the other rectangles.
Image

Now the final touch is to go to Colors/Curves and mess with that until you get a result that looks like wood or close to the design below.
