A dowel is a type of refined crafting material, obtained by refining planks at a crafting station. A dowel may be either Standard or Plated, depending on the materials used and level of the crafter. Both tiers are used to create inscriptions.


The generic recipe for making standard dowels is:

1 Dowel = 1 plank

The generic recipe for making plated dowels is:

1 Plated Dowel = 2 plank + 3 ingots
