"You can follow a good carpenter across Britannia by the trail of easels he leaves behind."

Masters of the saw, the plane and the level, carpenters spend long hours crafting some of the finest furniture and goods of Sosaria.

As your skill improves you may learn special Carpentry Recipes and create items out of special forms of Lumber. With the proper research, a Grand Master may learn the secrets of Masonry.

Tools of the Trade

  • Carpenter's tools come in all shapes and sizes. However, it is less the tool than the skill of the craftsman, and no one tool provides benefits over the others. They can be bought from a Carpenter or Tinker NPC Vendor or crafted using the Tinkering skill.
  • Lumber is a basic necessity for any item created using the Carpentry skill. It is gathered by using the Lumberjacking skill.
  • Wood comes in two varieties: Logs and Boards. Each type of wood requires a certain level of Carpentry or Lumberjacking skill to render from logs into much lighter boards.

Carpenters create items using various resources, but their standard working materials are boards harvested by Lumberjacks. Of these, there are various different types which provide different bonuses (and colours) to crafted items.

The skill levels a Carpenter requires to work with each type of board are:

Boards.png Plain: 0Boards (Oak).png Oak: 65Boards (Ash).png Ash: 75Boards (Yew).png Yew: 85
Boards (Bloodwood).png Bloodwood: 95Boards (Heartwood).png Heartwood: 95Boards (Frostwood).png Frostwood: 95

When wood is harvested, it initially comes in log form (weighing two stones instead of the single stone a board weighs). An Axe type item can be used to perform the conversion, though this is optional - raw logs work just as well for crafting as boards do, they simply weigh more.

Note that the skill levels required to harvest logs and/or convert them to boards differ from those listed here (refer to the boards page), and that for the purpose of creating boards either the Lumberjacking or Carpentry skill can be used.
