However, it is not that much complicated to gather logs, as all you need to do is chop down trees and add them to your inventory. If you are not feeling up to the task, then you can make use of Kelvin, your AI companion in Sons Of Forest, just order him to explore around and gather logs, and he will do exactly that.

And as for the axe you will not need to find it as you start the game off with it in your inventory as it is an essential tool in the game.

After you have collected enough logs, you can get started on constructing the defensive wall around your shelter. Now, to start off, you will first need to pick up some logs from your inventory and rotate them around using the right mouse button. This is because, by default you will be carrying the logs horizontally and in order to make the defensive wall, you need to equip them vertically.

The next step is to look at the ground and wait for a white circle to appear like the one in the above image. Once the circle appears, you will need to place the logs down. Now repeat this until you have quarantined off all the areas that you want to. After this, you have got a wall of logs that look sturdy enough to hold off the cannibals.

However, there is still one last step that will make them into a defensive wall. And to do that, you will need to equip your axe and aim towards the top of the log wall, where you will notice a red triangle indicating from where you need to point off the logs. Just hold the left mouse button down and let the axe do its magic which will turn the top of the logs into a point. And thus completing the process of building a defensive wall.
