Sheltered Wiki

Work bench.png

"Here, you can make furniture for your shelter, craft weapons for combat, and traps to catch animals."

The Work bench is where characters are able to combine resources to craft new items to use during expeditions or place in the shelter. Upgrading the work bench allows characters to build a wider and better array of items. Obtaining tools during expeditions will cause them to be stored above the work bench and allow characters to craft and repair items faster.

The ten tools are

  1. Chisel
  2. Drill
  3. Hammer
  4. Handsaw
  5. Nail Gun
  6. Pliers
  7. Ratchet
  8. Sander
  9. Screwdriver
  10. Wrench
