Thats a lot of detail there! A bit of drawing with a combination of filters and also some hand shading...it would take some time, maybe when i get home i can post...if nobody else helps you out.
for a very very very brief outline, you should be looking at getting the wood texture by applying a gradient (wood colors) add some noise and then filter > stylize > wind. This should give you the basic wood texture (if you don't have eye candy (it has a Filter > Wood filter)
Work on the edges and also roughing it up a bit (dust & scratches) hand shade it and then experiment some more! I will try it myself when i get home..this here should give you a start.
*Note you just have to create 4 - 5 pieces and re-use them to form the alphabets. Sketching out the pieces in Illustrator might help too...
