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

How to Acquire

Right click on a Log while having either a Metal 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:

If (Carpentry < board quality) then

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
