I am trying to make custom wood blocks for trees using Eclipse but can not find out how to get them to render so you can place them like vanilla Minecraft logs. I would like to extend blockWood but I am open to any solution.
I found a partial answer in a badge ("Clicked Face" found under "Player Interact" in Badges). I still don't know how to change the block rotation with that idea.
I'm not sure if it will help, but you could try experimenting with the rotate drone block, located in the drone Blockly menu.
