Differences between Vanilla wood
Vilewood does have alot of similarties with Vanila wood but it has the uniquie ability to be fireproof and lavaproof. However if Lava Particles land on the Vilewood it catches on fire, but will eventually burn out, not destroying the block because it's impossible to create fire on Vilewood with a flint & steel. Because Vilewood is fireproof it cannot be used to burn charcoal in a furnace.
When put in a crafting slot it will give the player 4 Vilewood planks.
