While adventuring as Will and Samantha in Harvest Island, your dad will give you tasks to craft and collect specific things to help around the farm and appease the gods. There are some items you can gather from around the map that will craft things like a fishing rod and ladder that will help you with fishing and mining, as well as other items. All you have to do is bring the right materials to the crafting table.

Finding the Station to Craft

In the bedroom, where you begin the game, you’ll see a table at the bottom of the screen. To craft, all you have to do is approach it and press the interaction button. However, first you will want to make sure you have the materials you need to craft the items you need. You’ll also want to look in the correct section of the menu. There’s also an option for Build, Upgrades, and Craft Idols.

Crafting will give you the items you need as you explore. Build gives you upgraded stations on your farm like an upgraded Chicken Box, Kitchen, and more. Upgrades is where you will get more space, this applies to your farm, rucksack, and chest. Craft Idols is where you can go to make an idol you exchange for a favor from the gods.
