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:
Finally, the following wood cannot be crafted at all.
The different wood types have the same properites as the non-ordinary metals. More on types and properties here.
- oak -> copper : lighter and faster
- silverleaf -> silver : undead slaying / repulsion
- ash -> gold : lightsource
- ebony -> blackrock : allover better attack & defense rating
How to make tinted logs
Venomous and ebony logs are made by alchemically treating regular logs with various ingredients. More on treating and alchemy here.
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.
Woodrafting, like most crafting skills, can be repeated with F11.
Here is a list of items that can be made from ordinary logs along with their minimum skill requirements:
|Arrows x100||logs x10||20|
note: Lumber is created by using a saw rather than a pocket knife.
Weapons and Armour
Weapons and shields can be made with normal logs, tinted logs and even logs with a plus on them.
|Small Shield||logs x3||10|
|Short Bow||logs x2||14|
|Long Bow||logs x3||18|
Tinted Items and Magic Items
Please see the Advanced Crafting page for more info on crafting magic wooden items and tinted wooden items.
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. Building furniture requires relatively large amounts of materials, and in many cases several units of lumber will be required.
|Small Table||lumber + nails||70|
|Tile Scrolls (wooden floor)||lumber||70|
|Chairs||lumber + nails||75|
|Dresser||lumber + nails + mirror||80|
|Keg||lumber + nails||80|
|Door||lumber + nails||80|
|Drawers||lumber + nails||85|
|Door With Window||lumber + nails||85|
|Barrel||lumber + nails||90|
|Fence||lumber + nails||95|
