i was wondering if anyone knew of any good woodcut typefaces like the one down below. i'm not really looking for the ID of the one shown but something on the same lines thats a good and legitimate woodcut font other than rosewood. if someone could help me out that would awesome.

FYI, if that were a typeface (it looks more like a custom plate) it would more likely be metal rather than wood. That's some fairly fine detail for a wood face.

Some sources of 'wood' fonts:

Railhead by FontMesa is fairly similar but with a more ornate fill-in. "Tuscan" was the name of this 19th Century style so try a myfonts search for that.
