|Job Title||Wood Burner|
|This article is about the current version of DF.|
Dwarves with the wood burning skill turn wood into either ash or charcoal at a wood furnace. Dwarves with high skill level accomplish these tasks more quickly. Typically a wood stockpile and a bar/block stockpile are placed near the furnaces.
 How do I get dwarves to burn wood?
Wood burner is somewhat tenuously considered a farming related job (because ash can be made into potash, which fertilizes fields) and thus the labor is filed under Farming/Related labor menu, and not Furnace Operating.
