Wood Shape (Sung Wood)

4-level Transmutation

Ritual - does not require spell slot, takes 10 minutes longer
Casting Time: 1 Action
Range/Area: Touch
Components: V, S, M *
Duration: Instantaneous
You touch a wooden object of Large size or smaller or a section of wood like a tree no more than 10 feet in any dimension and form it into any shape that suits your purpose. The object created must be one solid piece with no moving parts. So, for example, you could shape a branch into a quarterstaff, bucket or an idol. You would also make a small passage through a wall, as long as the wall is less than 5 feet thick.
  The quality and intricacy of the item shaped depends on the skill, imagination and will of the caster. With only intent and little or no skill you can achieve an average item available in shops and stores of the world. The quality of the final object made by the spell is commensurate with the quality of the source wood. So a branch from an oak tree produces an oak quarterstaff. You may also shape items to a higher degree of craftsmanship, with skill, training or proficiency in artisan's tools used to craft such objects. Creatures or magic items can't be created or transmuted by this spell however items shaped in this manner are often used to imbue them with powerful enchantments.
