As of the mini-publish of 26 March 2009, the method of making boards out of logs has changed. No longer does it involve the use of a carpenter tool. It does, however, require EITHER the Lumberjack or Carpentry skill needed for the wood type to make the conversion. Boards are now made by using your axe on the pile of logs (in your pack), theyby bypassing the wood type check that made lumberjacking on a carpenter such a pain. Making boards does not require the axe to be in hand (the way chopping trees to get the logs, actually does). As making normal boards was a 0-skill job before, it is likely that anyone should still be able to turn normal wood logs into bards.
