Wood Chopping Block
Not to be confused with The Chopping Block.

A Wood Chopping Block is used to create firewood and requires a Woodcutter's Axe to use. Each session yields six pieces of firewood.





  • Unlike most other interactable objects, NPCs will not stop using it when the Dragonborn attempts to use it.
  • Although they require Woodcutter's Axes to chop firewood on, most wood chopping blocks are not near one.

    • Another advantage is chopping (and then selling) wood doesn't increase your level, so no worry about accidently overleveling.
