The quality of the boards depends on the quality of the tree, the quality of your Saw, and your Carpentry skill level.

How to Acquire

Right click on a Log while having either a Saw or Bone Saw equipped and the option "Make boards" appears. A metal saw can make more boards out of one log than a bone saw. However, it is often easier to get a high quality bone saw than it is to get an equal quality metal saw, so sometimes a bone saw is still desirable when you want quality Boards.


Your Carpentry skill acts as a softcap for board quality. The formula for board quality is as follows:

[math]\operatorname{_{q}Board} = \sqrt{_{q}Saw * _{q}Wood}[/math]

If (Carpentry < board quality) then [math]\operatorname{_{FinalQ}Board} = \frac{_{q}Board + Carpentry}{2}[/math]

Example (q10 Tree, q50 saw, 3 Carpentry)

board ql = sqrt(50 * 10)

board ql = 22.36

board ql = (22.36 + 3) / 2

board ql = 25.36 / 2

board ql = 12.68

board ql = 12
