Tables for experimental results

Shaving and sanding

Regarding the columns for shaving and sanding attempts: First number to register the failed attempts (resulting in injuring your thumb and losing HP), second number to register partial success ("your fingers cramp...") until the work is finished. (Should both be considered failures, just one more painful than the other?)

item wood type design bonus turning bonus whittling bonus shaving attempts sanding attempts finished result
wand olive wood 241 198 219 7/6 2/8 This is a foot-long length of olive wood, of uneven width. It's apparently a staff.
wand rowan 241 198 225 1/3 0/3 This is a foot-long length of rowan, of uneven width. It's apparently a staff.
wand oak 244 201 225 0/3 2/8 This is obviously a wand, and it would probably do well for any normal purpose, but it's not entirely straight.
pen holly 244 201 225 0/4 0/6 This pretty, slender holly pen sits lightly in the hand, the delicate shaft and responsive balance leaving no doubt that it will write beautifully for a skilled writer.
wand cherry wood 244 201 226 2/2 1/2 This is a slim cherry wood wand, smooth and unadorned.
pen elm 244 201 226 0/3 0/3 This is a sturdy elm fountain pen, smooth and unadorned. It sits neatly and comfortably in the hand.
staff cedar 253 202 227 0/4 0/2 This is obviously a staff, and it would probably do well for any normal purpose, but it's not entirely straight.
wand ebony 253 202 227 0/4 0/3 Referring to this length of rough, splintery ebony as a wand is a courtesy at best. It looks as though the wood-turner chewed it to shape with his teeth, and then smeared it with an uneven coating of grime from the forge.
flute ebony 253 202 227 6/0 n/a Did not even get as far as giving it a proper shape.

After the turning process all items seem to be ordinary-looking, and they gain their final shape when you finish with the drawknife.


Staining and polishing

You cannot hurt yourself by failing. Sponge and wax will only be used up and disappear from your inventory once you finish the job.
