How to earn money woodcutting (Skyrim)
Want to earn money woodcutting? This article is designed to help you with all your Skyrim woodcutting questions.
The first chance you have to earn money woodcutting will be in Riverwood town, where Gerdur and Hod runs a woodcutting operation, a lumbar mill in other words. There is a woodcutting axe lying on a nearby table next to the lumber mill, pick this up and start swinging at the woodchopping blocks. Do this for as long as you like and then bring the firewood to Hod which will reward you with money, equivalent of how much firewood you have cut. You will cut firewood equivalent of 30 gold for each time you press the woodcutting action. You will never become truly rich from this, but at least its an honest start to your way to riches.
Q - Who owns the lumbar mill in Riverwood town?
A - The lumbar mill in Riverwood town is owned by Gerdur and Hod.
Q - Can I marry Gerdur, and thus get some of the money she earns from running the lumbar mill?
A - No, unfortunately you can not.
Q - Is it possible to own a sawmill / lumbermill in Skyrim, and employ people to work there?
A - Good idea, but Elder Scrolls V Skyrim does not have the option of running your own store (but you never know for Elder Scrolls VI, the games just seem to get bigger and better all the time).
Q - Speaking of Elder Scrolls VI, will it have offline multiplayer coop for consoles, and LAN for the PC versions?
A - Nothing has been confirmed, but some key producers have hinted that offline multiplayer might be one of the new, big things in the next game in the series. Then we can speculate that it will most likely not be splitscreen, but rather system link for xbox 360 and PS3, as it would most likely require too much from just one console.
Q - How do I get money from the firewood I have cut?
A - You have to deliver it to Hod to exchange it for cash, he will normally be working on and off at the lumber mill from about 9am - 15pm.
Q - Where can I get a woodcutting axe?
A - Normally, a woodcutting axe is to be found lying around close to lumbar mills or nearby woodchopping blocks. You can also buy one from the local general store, i.e. in Riverwood or Whiterun.
Q - How much do I earn per firewood cut?
A - Each time you press the action key you cut wood worth approximately 30 gold.
Q - How much wood, would a woodchucker chuck if a woodchucker could chuck wood?
A - Yes... indeed, probably loads.
Q - Will I get better at chopping wood as I keep doing it? Will I level up in any of the skills? Is there a woodchopping skill I will level up in?
A - Unfortunately, you will not, it would have been great if this for example would have increased your stamina or your health points.
Q - Can I use the firewood I cut for anything? Can I build my own house in Skyrim with the wood I cut?
A - Besides earning 30 gold for each patch you deliver to Hod, you can not use the firewood to anything else. An option which would let you build your own house, wherever you want, would have been amazing, but would be probably be quite hard to put into the game.
Q - Is it possible to build a firecamp or fireplace in Skyrim?
A - No, unfortunately that is not possible.
