So, then you take the derivative of this function and then set it equal to 0, I took the derivative and got that function... but I was just wondering if my differentiation was correct.
it isn't correct. you would need the chain rule, which you didn't use
When we differentiate that, do we have to use implicit differentiation... since there is a k and a w involved, or do we leave out the k because the type of wood isn't required?

k is a constant, it is the constant of proportionality
