    The first pickaxe you make will be wooden, the next will be a stone pickax, or maybe iron. For a stone pickaxe, go to your crafting bench

    Gen Fire Dragon Theoretically it won't necessarily be true that your first pickaxe is wooden. There are a couple events that could make your first one a stone or even iron pick. For instance, finding an open air dungeon with iron in the chest, or a Creeper explosion dropping some Cobble.
