Wood is a block that has the log's bark texture on six sides. It comes in 6 species: oak, spruce, birch, jungle, acacia, and dark oak.
Stripped wood is a variant obtained when any axe is used on wood.
Wood can be broken by hand, but using an axe will speed up the process.
|Breaking time[note 1]|
- Times are for unenchanted tools in seconds. For more information, see Haste § Instant mining.
Using an axe on wood will turn it into stripped wood.
Stripped acacia wood generates in savanna villages.
Stripped spruce wood generates in snowy tundra villages.
Wood can be crafted out of four matching logs, yielding three wood as a result.
