Wood is a basic tile in Terraria that can be used to craft a variety of items, for building structures, or for decoration purposes. In Update 1.2, varieties of wood were also added.


Wood can be obtained by cutting down Trees using an Axe. It is sometimes also found in naturally generated structures underground.


Wood's main use is to build the player a shelter and craft Work Benches. It can also be used to create Wooden Platforms for various purposes or to craft various storage items such as Chests and Mannequins.


  • Wood is generally the first tile a player will get, other then possibly dirt.
  • Wood cannot be cut by any other tool than an axe or hamaxe.
