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.

Chopping trees

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.

  • ordinary
  • oak
  • silverleaf
  • ash

These types of woods are all alchemical concoctions and cannot be found by logging:

  • venomous
  • ebony

Finally, the following wood cannot be crafted at all.

  • vampyric

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.

Crafting items

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.

Woodcraft can be used to make wooden weapons like staves and bows as well as adventuring items like torches and rafts. They also make poles which are useful for Tinkers and Weaponsmiths.

Woodrafting, like most crafting skills, can be repeated with F11.

Basic Items

Here is a list of items that can be made from ordinary logs along with their minimum skill requirements:

Item Ingredients Skill
Torch x5 log 0
Lumber log 0
Pole log 5
Arrows x100 logs x10 20
Raft logs x10 40

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.

Item Ingredients Min Skill
Club log 0
Staff log 4
Buckler logs x2 7
Shillelagh log 12
Small Shield logs x3 10
Short Bow logs x2 14
Crook log 16
Long Bow logs x3 18
Crossbow logs x5 20

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.

Item Ingredients Skill
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


The Grand Master Woodcrafter can create her/his own pet: an ebony golem, which epitomizes all a GM Woodcrafter's skills and abilities.
