How to Get Wooden Rod in Lego Fortnite

To get a Wooden Rod in Lego Fortnite, you have to go through a few steps. It’s fairly simple, but it will take some time and effort. First off, make a campfire. That only takes three Wood, so no problems there. Next, make a Crafting Station (three Wood and five Granite). This should then unlock the Lumber Mill under the Stations part of the section of the Utility part of the crafting menu. That’s what you need to make next, for eight Wood and fifteen Granite. Like i said, it takes some grinding, but it’s nothing too bad. However, make sure to put it under some kind of shelter, because it refuses to work in the rain.

Once you have the Lumber Mill up and running, the next step to get the Lego Fortnite Wooden Rod is to gather more wood. Interact with the Lumber Mill to use it. Be sure to select the Wooden Rod instead of the Planks in the menu. Feed wood into the mill by pressing the “Plus” button in the upper left and wait for the process to finish. That’s all there is to it. You don’t have to stay in the mill menu while it does, by the way. By the way, don’t forget that you’ll need five Wooden Rods to make a Shortsword on the Crafting Bench.
