How to make a Glass Workbench in Core Keeper

People in glass houses...

While Core Keeper may have cutesy old-school pixel graphics, don't be fooled. I went in thinking this might be a chilled experience such as Stardew Valley, but while it definitely has elements of it, there is a real edge to the survival side, drawing aspects and feel from games such as Minecraft and Terraria. As with all these games, if you want to get ahead (and stay alive), you'll need to craft some cool items. And every good crafter needs a place to prepare. Here we'll talk about how to make a Glass Workbench in Core Keeper.

Core Keeper – How to create a Glass Workbench

The Glass Workbench was introduced in Paws and Claws, the third big Core Keeper update, which landed during early access. To make it, you must have already upgraded from the Basic to the Copper workbench, as the Glass Workbench sits (difficulty-wise) between the Copper and Tin benches. Once you have a Copper Workbench, you can use it to make a Glass Workbench by using 8 Wood and 8 Glass Pieces.

How to get wood and glass pieces in Core Keeper

While Wood is easily attainable, to get Glass Pieces, you'll need to make them using Sand Blocks in a Glass Factory. Once built, you can use your Glass Workbench to construct Glass Bridges (one Glass Piece), Glass Floors (one Glass Piece), Thin Glass Walls (one glass piece), and Glass Walls (two Glass Pieces). I love how the glass structures look in-game, so for me, it's definitely worth the investment.
