The plank is one of the most basic and useful materials in SurvivalCraft, being necessary for a number of implements and recipes. Planks are created using either the player's basic crafting ability or with a workbench. It is created by the player putting one or more blocks of Wood into a crafting grid.

The most important use of wooden planks is making crafting tables, which provides a 3x3 sized crafting grid to the player. Without a crafting table it is impossible to make any tools or light sources.

They are also very important because you can make sticks with them. This is significant, because all of the tools currently available in the game use sticks as shafts. Another way the player can use them is making a chest which is capable of storing 9 items. They are used in the recipe for creating wicker lamps and indirectly to create torches.

As of Alpha 1.3, they can used as a fuel in furnaces. Planks are a very weak fuel, so they exhaust quite fast, but are cheap.
