The Sims 4 Tutorial: All about Woodworking

Woodworking allows your Sim to express their Creativity (and Emotions) by crafting wooden decor and useful objects.

Before you start with wooden adventures, it’s recommended that your Sim purchases and reads Handiness books so that they create better quality objects and make that process accident-free.

You cannot craft wooden items without the Woodworking Table. This Table is available in Build Mode for 1,800 Simoleons.

Tip: Place the Woodworking Table along with some decor that’ll help your Sims stay Focused. Focused Sims build better quality objects.

Tip #2: The bigger your Handiness Skill is, the more objects you’ll be able to build. Your chances of building a Good or Excellent objects also increases with the skill.

Facts:

  • It takes longer for a Perfectionist to finish with creating an object, but the object they create will certainly have a higher quality.
  • Certain Emotional Sculptures possess certain Emotional Auras. Their Moodlet strenght depends on a Sculpture’s quality.
  • Sims who completed the Painter Extraordinaire Aspiration are, thanks to their earned Expressionistic Trait, able to make Emotional Sculptures of their choice disregarding their current emotional state.
  • You can find Sculptures in your Sims inventory after finishing them, while objects that you create can be found in your Household inventory.
  • Clumsy and Dazed Sims have a higher chance of pinching their fingers while woodworking, giving your Sim a +1 Uncomfortable Moodlet.
  • Sims who mastered the Handiness Skill will receive the ”So Handy!” +2 Focused Moodlet each time they finish creating an object.

    Nice tutorial…Thanks a lot 😀

  • Great guide! I checked the Bath tub price with an excellent quality. It’s §1.510
    But there is still a bug that you can’t place the excellent bath tub.

      Yup, I noticed everyone is having the same issue (including me). Hopefully EA will fix this soon.
