Where to Find Wooden Rods in Lego Fortnite

Players can get Wooden Rods by crafting them through the Lumber Mill, one of the most essential tools for building in Lego Fortnite. That said, you can’t go ahead and build the Lumber Mill immediately — there are a few steps you must take first.

First, you must build a Campfire and Crafting Station (the two options in the build menu). The Campfire costs three Wood, while the Crafting Station costs three Wood and five Granite. After you build these two stations, you will unlock the Lumber Mill in your build menu. Building the Lumber Mill costs eight Wood and fifteen Granite.

Once you have built the Lumber Mill, you can now start crafting Wooden Rods. Interact with the Lumber Mill to open the crafting menu, where you will have two options to choose from: Planks or Wooden Rod. For this case, select the Wooden Rod option, import the necessary amount of ingredients (one Wood for each Wooden Rod), and wait for it to process. Although the processing of the Wooden Rod doesn’t take long, remember that you don’t need to wait until it finishes.

What Does the Wooden Rod Do in Lego Fortnite?

The Wooden Rod is a helpful resource in Lego Fortnite as it can be used to create the Shortsword at the Crafting Bench. It costs five Wooden Rods to create the Shortsword, so make sure you collect enough Wood to make the necessary number of Wooden Rods.
