For other uses, see Wood Cutter.

The Wood Cutter is a deceased Breton lumberjack directly west of Lakeview Manor, and just south of Lake Ilinalta.


The Wood Cutter is a deceased Breton near a few felled trees, presumably remnants of his work. Next to him is his trusty axe The Woodsman's Friend, a unique Iron Battleaxe. The Conjurer's Altar is to the northeast, but the actual cause of his death is unknown. To the east of his body is the site where Lakeview Manor can be built with Hearthfire.

Just a few steps away from him is a stump with a tipped over tankard on it and a swarm of ants enjoying themselves.
