Valheim: How To Get Wood From Pile Using Wood Stack

Know more about the Wood Stack in Valheim and how to use it.

Making a Wood stack in Valheim is the most appropriate way to store wood in an early game. They cost you no space, unlike storing them inside the house or inside chests. You can keep your wood stack in the open ground around your base and retrieve wood from it whenever you want. You also don’t have to carry them around always with you causing you to be encumbered (slowing you down and also prevents you from regaining your stamina), nor waste your precious chests to hold them. So today let us understand everything about Valheim Wood Stack and Wood Pile.

To create a Wood Stack in Valheim, you need to equip Hammer, right-click and select Wood Stack from the Misc tab. You need at least 50 pieces of wood to make one stack.

Once you have collected 50 pieces of wood, make Wood Stacks to avoid storing them in chests.

This is both aesthetically and functionally the most convenient way to keep wood. This method is very helpful during the initial phases of the game where you will need lots of wood to craft items and build a home, but you won’t be having enough ways to store all this wood. The wood stack only allows you to remove the entire stack (whole 50 pieces of wood) from the pile. You can’t remove lower wood stacks or split the item in this wood pile. Even though chests take fewer tiles in-game, you can save resources to build those chests by following this method.
