How to make them

Wood

A wooden tool rod can be crafted in the part builder which gives you one rod and one stick from one block wooden planks, but normal sticks work just as well.

Stone

Stone tool rods can be made in two ways and work with both cobblestone and stone, either you craft the rod in the part builder which gives you one rod and one stone shard so a total of two rods per block. The other way is to craft them is in any normal crafting area(crafting bench or inventory) place two blocks vertically and you will get stone tool rods, two rods if cobblestone, four rods if stone.

A flint tool rod can be made in the part builder which gives you a flint tool rod and a flint shard.
