I'm working on setting up an 'everything' factory in minecraft using equivalent exchange and buildcraft. However, I would like the sole source material to be cobblestone, and it seems there's no way to convert non-organic items into organic, so it doesn't seem I can convert cobble to wood.

Is there a way to do this with EE or not?

As soon as I saw "Equivalent Exchange" in the question title I started looking for a fullmetal-alchemist tag. –  CyberSkull Dec 17 '11 at 0:16
    
Wait, couldn't you use an Energy Condenser? Or am I mixing my mods up? –  Unionhawk Mar 20 '12 at 12:23
    
I think so, but I've not actually tried EE6 yet, and the energy condenser didn't work like that in EE5. –  Kenneth Posey Mar 21 '12 at 4:27

Note

This method doesn't work in EEv6+ as the recipes were all removed.

End note

After 45 mins of tracing recipes, I settled on a roughly 23 step conversion process that can convert cobble into wood.

Basically it goes like this (I won't have access to the computer with the details again until later):

1) Cobble
2) Dirt
3) Sand
4) Glass
5) Ice
6) Lapis
7) *lots of changing dyes*
8) Cactus green
9) Saplings
10) Wood

From experimenting with that it seems that you should be able to navigate from cobble to any other item on the EE crafting tree by using dyes as a go-between. =)

edit

After further perusing recipes, here's the shortest version so far:

1) Cobble
2) Dirt
3) Sand
4) Glass
5) Ice
6) Lapis
7) *lots of changing dyes*
8) Cocoa beans
9) Wood

Ingenious! I spent a long time yesterday trying to make the conversion, but failed. The ice to lapis to other dye is the key for sure. I think I found a shorter way than what you're suggesting here, though. –  user3389 Dec 18 '11 at 6:25
    
Looking at the dye recipes more it seems that I could have changed the dyes just one more time to get cocoa beans, and done 6x cocoa beans => 9 wood. I think the exchange rate is the same though. So I see your short recipe and raise you an even shorter one, lol. –  Kenneth Posey Dec 18 '11 at 7:16

Just use an energy condenser, and it will turn quite literally anything put into it into whatever is in the top left slot, including wood.

Or just put the energy into a Klein Star and then lock your tablet to a fuel. –  Shinrai Nov 11 '12 at 1:28

No. You can see a list of wood-related recipes here, on the equivalent wiki. Nothing about wood from cobblestone.
