The Work Bench is a crafting station required to craft many essential early-game items. It is also one possible way to fulfill a House's flat surface item requirement. Bottles, Pink Vases, and Mugs can be placed on it, allowing it to function as an Alchemy Station. It is the first crafting station the player can make in the game, and one of the first items overall.
There are many variations on the Work Bench, all of which are exactly the same except for appearance. Most of these can be crafted, but some must be picked up from areas such as the Dungeon.
