How to Craft Chests in LEGO Fortnite

To store items when your inventory is full, you need to craft chests using a Lumber Mill. However, you can’t just make one. You must first make sure that you have built a Campfire and have collected the needed items to craft and build it. To build a Lumber Mill, you need 8 Wood and 15 Granite.

To collect wood, find thin trees and punch them until they break. You can collect smaller rocks if you don’t have a tool to break bigger ones. It might take a while, but you can do it. Once you have collected enough Granite and Wood, open the build menu, go to the first tab labeled ‘Utility,’ and construct a Lumber Mill. With that out of the way, it’s time to make some planks.

To make planks, you must also have wood. Keep collecting wood and then go to the Lumber Mill, select the Plank, and make six of them. That’s the amount you need to make your first chest. Once you have the required items, open the build menu, go to the last tab, the one with furniture, and then select Storage. Now, choose a safe and secure location to build your chest and start storing your items inside it. You can build more than one in case you need it.
