To craft the Lumber Mill, open your build menu like you did for the Workbench. The Lumber Mill will be the second item under the Utility tab in the Stations category.

You’ll need eight Wood and 15 Granite to build the Lumber Mill.

How To Make Wooden Rods

Wooden rods cost the same amount of wood as planks and take the same amount of time to complete.
