I'm trying to find a way to make the text I'm specifying look like it's being chiselled on the background I'm setting; whether that background be a piece of wood, or a piece of marble, etc.

I tried searching around for these types of font, without much luck.

The other option I tried was to use the font options to create the effect; once again, without much luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

What kind of font options did you use?
The easiest way to do what you're asking is to find a font that looks like what you want, make the font itself semi-transparent and add a shadow offset by a couple of points to the left or right and make the shadow solid. One could also make the shadow offset by a point or two vertically to create the depth you're looking for.

Dafont.com is a great place to look for fonts.

Thanks for the tip.

It's given me a good place to start. Tried some test widgets & it's heading in the right direction.
