Wood is one of the first block types you will and should obtain. Wood can be choped from trees or bought from the block market (Get it?). Wood can be used to make a variety of things such as Wooden Planks, Sticks, Wooden Picks, Wooden Axes, Wooden Shovels, and Wooden Swords. Wood may also be used as a fuel sourse in a Furnace. It won't last as long as coal, but it the point is that it will burn.Its worth noticing that wood can be sold for 33 gold coins which is the most you can get from where you spawn so its best to get a hatchet and chop down some wood for some gold coins.
