Woodworking is a technology in Age of Empires that can be researched at the Market once the Tool Age is reached. Once researched, it adds +1 missile range to every archer, ship, and tower, and adds +2 to Villager wood gathering.

Woodworking is an important technology for every civilization reliant on archers or navy as it not only increases their range, but also aids the woodcutting abilities, which is necessary to amass large amounts of archers or ships.
