(Redirected from Yew Wood)
A log

Using an Axe, a Lumberjack can chop Logs, which in turn can be used to produce wooden Boards. Beginning Lumberjacks will only be able to harvest plain wood, but with practice, they can extract types that come with special properties. Elves enjoy a racial bonus for finding such logs. These colored logs are used by carpenters and fletchers for a variety of crafting purposes.

Whenever a tree refreshes after being harvested from, there is a slight chance it will change resource type. For example, a tree that yielded Bloodwood today might give plain wood tomorrow, and vice versa. Nevertheless, it is a good idea to revisit a tree until the type changes.

Making Boards

Logs weigh two stones each, but can be converted to boards by using an Axe type item on them. Boards are just as useful but only weigh a single stone.

Colored logs require high levels of Carpentry or Lumberjacking skill to trim down into boards and the minimum skill requirements for each type are listed in the table below.

Unlike the smelting of mined ore there is no chance of failure; you either have the skill level required and it works, or you don't and it doesn't.

Wood Types

Note that the skill levels listed here relate to those required to harvest logs and/or convert them to boards. For the skill levels required to create other items from colored woods, refer to the Carpentry and/or Bowcraft & Fletching pages.
