Fine wood is a crafting resource obtained by chopping down Birch and Oak trees in the Meadows or Plains biomes. The plains features plentiful Birch trees, though the dangerous enemies and hazards within tend to make farming Fine Wood there unfeasible until later in the game.

Unlike Beech and Fir trees, Birch trees require a Bronze axe to chop. Players must first defeat Eikthyr and craft the Antler pickaxe, which unlocks the ability to mine the ore required for the Bronze Axe.

Fine wood can also be looted from Shipwrecks on the coasts of the Black Forest biome. A Stone axe is the only requirement to chop down a Shipwreck. Alternatively, the player can knock over other nearby trees onto Birch or Oak trees to knock them down, then repeatedly roll the logs into each other and other trees to damage them(rocks won't work.) Eventually this way you can collect a small amount of fine wood early on. Similarly, a Troll or other large creatures may be coerced into destroying the trees (another slow, but viable process).
