This article is about is about planks in general. For planks made from normal logs, see Plank.

Planks are items that members use primarily in the Construction skill to make furniture for their houses. They are also used in some quests.

Planks come in four different varieties, namely plank.png: Inventory image of plank normal, Oak plank.png: Inventory image of Oak plank oak, Teak plank.png: Inventory image of Teak plank teak, and Mahogany plank.png: Inventory image of Mahogany plank mahogany.

There are a few spawn points for some planks. However, players can only make planks by taking various kinds of logs to the sawmill operator and paying a fee. The fee is different for each type of plank; in general, higher-level furniture requires more expensive planks.

In addition to physically taking logs to the sawmill, players may also send their servant to the sawmill to convert them into planks. The Plank Make spell from the Lunar spellbook may also be used.

Spawns[edit | edit source]

One of the most affordable ways to level through the early levels of Construction is by collecting free planks which can be found at various spawn points.

Plank Make spell[edit | edit source]

The Plank Make spell can be used to create planks for use in construction. However, this requires a minimum Magic level of 86 and completion of the Lunar Diplomacy and Dream Mentor quests.

Sawmills[edit | edit source]

The interface to convert logs into planks.

There are 3 sawmills across RuneScape, one located north-east of Varrock, which is accessible to all players, and two that has requirements to access. Sawmills can make logs provided into planks for a fee.

Lumber Yard[edit | edit source]

An efficient method to make regular or oak planks is obtain a full inventory of logs, take them to the Sawmill Operator and turn them into planks, then make a small trek north to the Wilderness and fill a looting bag with the planks and obtain a new inventory to turn into planks, allowing an extra 25 logs per trip.

  • Although you can carry 28 items in the looting bag you will have to go to a bank to empty the bag before you can use those planks, as the bag is Deposit Only, so this method is only efficient if you are intending to cut regular/oak trees to take to the sawmill operator after the looting bag is full of planks from your first visit.

Please Note: You cannot fill both the looting bag and your inventory with logs and take them to the sawmill operator as he will only supply you with planks from logs that are in your inventory.

There is a hot-air balloon slightly south of the sawmill that could be used from Castle Wars, requiring completion of Enlightened Journey and having the Varrock route unlocked. Each trip would require a ring of dueling and a willow log.

For those with 99 Crafting, the hot-air balloon just outside the Crafting Guild can be used to travel to the Lumberyard for one willow log, using the Crafting cape to teleport back to the Crafting Guild for quick and easy banking, without additional teleportation costs.

Lumberyard teleports and rings of dueling could also be used to bank faster and return, although this is somewhat expensive.

Woodcutting Guild[edit | edit source]

Using the Sawmill in the Woodcutting Guild, the player can make a full load of planks in 20 seconds by using a charged skills necklace and ring of dueling.

Prifddinas[edit | edit source]

While the Sawmill operator in Prifddinas is a less efficient method of producing planks from previously obtained logs, it can be a very viable way of turning the nearby cut Teak trees or Mahogany trees into planks and subsequently banking them.

Players can expect upwards of 500 teak or mahogany planks an hour with this method.
