Driftwood can also be used for crafting recipes that will accept any kind of Wood or Log, like (as of R26 in December 2015):
Any kind of Wood or Log (including Driftwood) can be used to craft (as of R26 in December 2015):
- Wood Mining Cell: 4 blocks of any Wood or Log, 1x Vines, and 1 Mushroom (Red Mushroom, Brown Mushroom or Glowing Mushroom)
- Processor: 8 blocks of any kind of Wood or Log, 8 blocks of Stone, and 2x Vines
- Moss Torches: 1 block of any kind of Wood or Log, and 1 Moss
Logs can be used as Fuel for Forges; 2 blocks will be needed for each process (of melting or hardening), and they will burn rather slowly. Logs cannot be corrupted currently (as of R26 in December 2015), as Corrupted Wood would make a much more powerful Fuel.
Logs are flammable, so be careful when putting torches onto or under blocks of Logs (or any other block of Wood or Leaves), especially in hot environments like Savannahs, on Shores or in Jungles. Driftwood is rather common on sandy shores. Fire is able to spread onto other flammable materials and such a forest fire can burn down a whole forest and cannot be stopped (currently, as of R27 in January 2016), except by creating aisles wide enough so flames won't be able to leap over.
