I found a wood axe and a chopping block near to each other in a camp somewhere and so became aware that I could use the axe with the chopping block to (very slowly) produce firewood.
Does firewood have any purpose other than just being low-value merchant fodder?
Can I set up camp fires, maybe, or something else?
Also, does a chopping block ever run out like ore seems do?
(I got bored quickly so didn't test more than a couple of chops)
