Completing the collection the first time gets a home Woodworking Bench - the second time you score a very nice Doghouse for your pet!


The art of turning wood into stuff, ah Woodworking! And you get to do it at your spanking new Community Center, or rather on the second flood of your spanking new Community Center, which is all that much the better since you spent a lot of money and time building it! Well, it does have other uses, to be sure, and other hobbies in it, but that is not really the point.

Using the Woodworking Benches on the second floor you have the following options:

  • Quick Practice: 4m / 15 XP

  • Sharpen Skills: 1h / 150 XP

  • Carve Magnum Opus: 9h / 450 XP

  • Extensive Practice: 1d / 900 XP

As you build Items in the workshop you earn levels, which are:

1.What Is a Hammer?





6.Master Craftsman

The mini-game for Woodworking has you helping your Sim capture the animated crafted doll they made, before it escapes through the window!

Woodworking Collections

  • Set 1: Board with Bent Nail + Pine Oakio + Li'l Ole Smokey = 750 XP

  • Set 2: 2-Bit Wooden Hammer + SimCity Turbine Replica + Sammy Splinters = 1,000 XP

  • Set 3: Weird Ornament + Fine Sculpture + Rumple Steelskin = 1,500 XP

  • Set 4: Will Wright Replica + Wooden Dragon + Ragtime Runaway = 2,000 XP

Crafting all 12 Woodworking Items results in the award of your own Woodworking Bench!

Crafting all 12 Woodworking Items a Second Time obtains a FREE Premium Dog House!

Crafting all 12 Woodworking Items a Third Time obtains a FREE Foosball Table!

The rare collection items are harder to come by but trigger a fun mini-game when you do

Special Woodworking Event

Wooden Doll: Your Sim has crafted a Wooden Doll - Work together with your Sim to catch the Wooden Doll. Your Job: tap the doll to make it change direction. Your Sim's job: catch the doll as it tries to jump through the window.

Collecting Your Woodworking Bench Reward

You might think that, in consideration of all the hard work and effort that you put into mastery of the Hobby, the Wizards behind the game would make an effort to let you know just where you go to collect the reward you have unlocked by crafting every one of the Woodworking Hobby Items, right?

Actually no, not so much really...

After you complete this epic crafting Quest, having made a bazillion duplicates in your seemingly unending quest to make the last item on the collection list (which for me turned out to be the Wooden Dragon which was not even the "Rare" flagged item in the fourth set?!) you might logically assume that you can buy your Bench at the in-game store. But no, instead they put the Bench in The Hobby Shop as an item - which makes very little sense but there you have it!

So to save you time mates, that is where it is - in The Hobby Shop - priced at just $1,800 Simoleons.

Well done by the way! Good on ya! Nice one! Now go Fishing!

Your reward for completing the collection is a home Woodworking Bench that lets you create items, XP, and wealth right in your own home. Sweet!

My woodworking sims get no further than level 3 when I have nearly done all the hobbies and started collecting again on some. Why are they not getting any further on? They have had woodwork benches in their homes since long before I built the community centre. I don't know whether I should get them a different hobby or not : /
