This profession is very simple but essential for many professions like Furnishing, Engineering or Weaponsmithing. With the help of Woodworking, wood that you can farm through the gathering profession Logging is processed into materials such as lumber and planks. In order to process the wood, you need to go to a Woodshop in a settlement.

For some materials there are two ways to make them, which is why they are listed twice in the recipes overview in the game. Different materials are used, one lower level and one higher level. So you have a choice and can craft with the materials that are available to you in larger quantities.

Origin of the materials
Procurement of raw materials
In order to upgrade your profession from 1-200, you need a lot of wood. With the profession Logging you can earn these materials yourself. The expansion of Logging 1-200 is very time-consuming, but you will get a large amount of wood.
With this wood you can ideally expand your Woodworking. Theoretically, you can also buy all materials at the trading post, but you will notice that especially Wyrdwood and Ironwood will be in great demand and expensive.

How does the skill system work?
For each item you craft you get experience. For items that are available from Skill Level 0, you’ll get significantly fewer experience points compared to an item that is unlocked at Level 150. Theoretically you can increase your Skill Level with every item. But beware: The cheapest material is not always the cheapest solution!
Rank 1-50: Timber – Woodshop Tier 2
With Timber you learn the first 50 levels and need about 1600 wood from bushes, dead trees as well as young trees. You can cut down these trees with a Logging level of 0.
Stufe 51-100: Lumber – Woodshop Tier 3
As soon as you reach level 50 you can produce Lumber for the first time. For this you need timber and wood from mature trees (Logging 50+). Additionally you need Sandpaper, which you can find in chests in the world. From level 50 you can also produce it yourself with Woodworking.
Since the amount of lumber from step 1-50 will not be enough for you, you will still have to produce a lot of lumber at 51-100. You will advance more slowly, but you will still get experience points.
The experience points increase per level a little bit more.
In every settlement the Woodshop is standard on Tier 2. If you want to craft Lumber, you have to do it in a settlement which has this building upgraded to at least Tier 3.
Stufe 101-150: Wyrdwood Planks – Woodshop Tier 4
From level 100 you can produce the first Wyrdwood Planks. However, wyrdwood is rare in the forests, so the prices at the trading post are very high. To cut down wyrdwood, you need level 100 Logging.
Stufe 151-200: Ironwood Planks – Woodshop Tier 5
Once you are at a level of 150, you can make tropical wood boards. For this you need tropical wood and wyrdwood boards as well as sandpaper. The felling of tropical trees is possible from a logging level of 150.
newworld-map can show you all available tree nodes in the world.
Stufe 200: Glittering Ebony
With a level of 200, Glittering Ebony makes the most valuable boards, as they are needed for epic weapons and tools, among other things. Besides Ironwood Planks, you need Wildwood and Barbvine, which you very rarely get when cutting tropical trees.
As an add-on, you will need Obsidian Sandpaper , which you can either craft yourself or collect from supply containers in the world.
