See also: Crafting 101.

A Crafting Station allows players to craft various items. Entering the inventory screen displays the "Crafting window" in the lower-left, and when the player is standing near one or more Crafting Stations and possesses the right crafting ingredients, the bar is expanded with additional item choices. Nearly all crafting stations are furniture. There are currently 44 crafting stations in total.
