What did you do with your wooden pick, did you store it in a chest, use it up, or throw it away? I myself kept it in a chest for no reason at all.

The answer to life is no.
I keep it in a chest until i get a diamond pick and use it to make a portal to get some netherrack. Then I build a shrine with a single netherrack block in the middle, light it on fire, then throw the wooden pick in it :tongue.gif:
Once I get 3 cobblestone with the wooden pick, I a stone pick to mine 80% of the way on a block, but at the last moment I switch to the wood one. That way, the mining process is faster than wood, but doesn't hurt my stone pick (until the wood one is gone).
I use it until I get 20 or so cobble and then it sits in my inventory until I get around to making a chest, at which point it sits in that chest until it either gets moved to a storage room or the end of time.
