Well it doesn't need a ton of uses, it would just be there to keep you from spending four logs on a bark block. (Also when you strip a log it shouldn't happen instantly, otherwise players on multiplayer servers will troll and strip every log on every tree)
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Small suggestion for a new type of potion - potion of etherealness. Vexes drop an item (maybe otherworldly essence, ectoplasm perhaps..?) and when brewed this give the ability to phase through solid blocks for a very short time (not bedrock, and perhaps not obsidian). You wouldn't be able to 'fall' through the ground though, and only be able to move up through blocks a few blocks, as if you had drank a potion of leaping II.
