What counts as fine detail for purposes of wood shape? Ironwood references it and says:

Using this spell with wood shape or a wood-related Craft check, you can fashion wooden items that function as steel items.

But wood shape makes it sound pretty crude. Would wood shape be able to create a simple shape like a sword but something like chainmail or other functioning armor would require crafting? Or could wood shape form workable armor?

My party is still trying to do things I consider dumb with wood shape. Any thoughts on how complex an object wood shape can create?

Wood Shape

Wood shape enables you to form one existing piece of wood into any shape that suits your purpose. While it is possible to make crude coffers, doors, and so forth, fine detail isn't possible. There is a 30% chance that any shape that includes moving parts simply doesn't work.

Crude items only, fine detail is impossible.

Which means no engraving, no relief work, no fine detail.

I would picture it as what I can do with a hatchet, saw and a hammer and not with a knife, chisel and sandpaper.
