To craft and get planks in LEGO Fortnite, players will need to first build their own Lumber Mill. However, you will need its recipe which can be unlocked after having at least one Crafting Bench at your disposal in the game. Once you unlock the recipe, here are the items you will need to build the Lumber Mill:

  • x8 Wood
  • x15 Granite

Both of these resources can be harvested pretty early in LEGO Fortnite. We would suggest that you craft yourself decent equipment like an axe and pickaxe at first to get yourself the necessary resources.
