How to Craft in Stardew Valley | Full Guide 2022

Have you just started playing Stardew Valley and feel lost about the crafting mechanic? Are you wondering what you can do with it and how? Don’t fuss, because here’s a guide you might find helpful! 

Crafting is quick and straightforward!

Stardew Valley lets you have the freedom to create items that you’ll find efficient with the Crafting feature. From the moment you start the game, you can make something you may use to the end. For example, Hyper-Speed Gro is one crafted item that helps your crops grow much faster.

When Crafting, you must collect resources here and there. Of course, it may take effort and time, but after you make it, you’ll realize it’s worth it. Fortunately, several crafted items take minimal effort but are still helpful.

Nevertheless, if you want to learn about Crafting for more plentiful farming, this article will guide you in exploring the feature. 

What is Crafting?

In Stardew Valley, Crafting is an in-game feature where you create items through recipes. Don’t mistake it for Cooking – a completely different skill to master. With Crafting, you can create things that would make farming and fulfilling every other task a breeze. 

How to Craft?

Before starting, you need recipes first. As you go along, you’ll get recipes by honing your skills, befriending other townspeople, or buying them from different merchants. If you’re a beginner, don’t worry because you’ll have the following upon starting the game: 

  • Gate
  • Wood Fence
  • Wood Path
  • Gravel Path
  • Cobblestone Path
  • Torch
  • Camp Fire
  • Chest
  • Wood Sign
  • Stone Sign

Pressing the “E” button on your PC activates the Crafting Menu. Look for the tab with the hammer icon where you’ll see the recipes on top and the Inventory at the bottom. 

Colored recipe icons indicate you’ve already obtained the materials needed. However, it’s faded if you haven’t collected them.

You can find most of the Ingredients in the trees, stones, and plants around your farm.

Hover over every item with your cursor to see the ingredients you might be missing for each of them. The component’s text is colored red if it’s not in your backpack. Remember: even if you have the item somewhere, you can’t craft it if it’s not on your Inventory.

Once you’re sure your desired item’s ingredients are ready, you may start clicking its icon. It’ll appear under the cursor when it’s ready. Put it in your Inventory and use it whenever you need it.

Crafting With Workbench – Is It Possible?

In this activity, you may find a Workbench helpful when you find difficulty in managing your Inventory. It’s possible to make anything as long as your ingredients are in Chests adjacent to the Workbench. Because of this approach, you won’t have to spend so much time looking for them in your backpack.

Organizing your chests can be helpful in the long run!

However, don’t expect it to withstand explosives, lightning, and storms, so use it carefully.

What Can You Craft?

There are a lot of items that you can craft in this game. Almost everything you can find helpful in the game is a crafted item. So if you aren’t familiar with this activity, you’d miss out on one of the things that makes the game interesting.

You don’t have to stress about it since it may get overwhelming, especially for beginners. 

Below is a table to help you learn about everything you can craft, their ingredients, and where you can find them. If there’s anything specific that you’re looking for, you’ll find everything here:

Crafting achievements are a thing. Considering the work you’ll need to get a handful of recipes, you deserve something as a reward. 

You’ll get each of them for working on a specific number of items. In the game, there are a total of 94 things to craft. Here’s the list of those achievements and the number of stuff you need to get them:

  • DIY – 15 
  • Artisan – 30 
  • Craft Master – All of them

Now, you might be wondering how you’re supposed to know how many you’ve crafted. You must go to the Options menu and tick the “Show Advanced Crafting Information” checkbox. This way, you’ll know which ones you’ve already crafted in the game and which you haven’t.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you buy chests in Stardew Valley?

No. You can’t buy Chests in Stardew Valley. Crafting them is the only way you can have them. If you want an instant way to own one, that’s not a problem with chests since one ultimately takes no time to make. You have to collect Wood (50), and that’s it.

What should I craft in Stardew Valley?

Craft the items that would benefit you the most throughout the game. Some of the best craft recipes are attainable early-game. Although some are a little more difficult to obtain, it’ll be worth it in the end.

For starters, you should craft the Furnace. You’ll need this for turning ores into bars, essential for tool upgrades and crafting other items.

For artisan goods, crafting Preserves Jar and Keg will aid you in making the most out of them. As for farming, a Seed Maker will help you with some excess crops and make them into seeds. For this reason, it’s also an essential thing to craft.
