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.

A Bottle, Pink Vase, Mug, or any Cup variant will function as this crafting station, as long as they are placed, which requires a flat Furniture item: a Platform, Table, Workbench, Dresser, Piano, Bookcase, or Tinkerer's Workshop. The Alchemy Table is an upgraded version that offers a 1/3 chance of not consuming a particular crafting ingredient.|
