Woodcrafting is the skill of making wooden weapons, items and equipment from the different logs that have been cut from trees or treated by alchemists. Some wooden items are also essential to other crafts.
Crafting and repairing wooden items is performed with a pocket knife on logs which can be cut from forests with a woodcutters axe.
Use (u) a woodcutters axe on an area of forest on the main continent to chop trees into logs. If you're unable to 'get a good log' then try a different patch of forest.
Logging is like mining: i.e. there are 'veins' of wood that will be exhausted by logging, but will regenerate over time.
Logging, like most actions, can be repeated with F9
Types of wood
There are seven types of wood. The following four types can be found in forests. Your skill in woodcrafting will determine whether you can find non-ordinary woods.
These types of woods are all alchemical concoctions and cannot be found by logging:
The different wood types have the same properites as the non-ordinary metals. More on types and properties here.
- oak -> copper : lighter and faster, less durable
- silverleaf -> silver : undead slaying / repulsion
- ash -> gold : lightsource
- ebony -> blackrock : allover better attack & defense rating / more durable
How to make tinted logs
Venomous, vampyric and ebony logs are made by alchemically treating regular logs with various ingredients. More on treating and alchemy here.
Tinted logs can be made from ordinary logs with a polypile wand; however you'll have to use your own brain to figure out the recipe! (it's pretty obvious.)
Use (u) a pocket knife to craft items from available logs in your inventory. Use a tinted pocket knife to craft tinted items. There is a skill premium required to craft tinted items.
Here is a list of items that can be made from ordinary logs along with their minimum skill requrements:
* Lumber is created by using a saw rather than a pocket knife.
Woodrafting, like most crafting skills, can be repeated with F11
To craft oak items you will need a Oak Pocket Knife. You will not be able to find Oak Logs until 50% Woodcrafting. This is not the whole Oak crafting list as i reach a higher % i will add more.

How to create tinted pocket knives
Blacksmiths can make tinted pocket knives. The are made from the following ingot colours:
- oak pocket knife: copper ingot
- silverleaf pocket knife: silver ingot
- ash pocket knife: gold ingot
- ebony pocket knife: blackrock ingot
All carpentry requires a hammer, which can be created by a tinker. Carpentry creates soulbound furniture scrolls, thus is only useful if you own a house.
