Are you wondering how to make a Heavy Work Bench in Terraria so you can start crafting items like the penguin statue, tin plating, green slab wall, or topaz gem lock? The Heavy Work Bench is difficult to craft, but you must farm several materials to create the components required to craft it. The one convenient thing about the recipes in Terraria is the ability to use the materials marked as ‘any,’ which means you don’t need a specific type of resource. For instance, eight different types of sand can be used in any combination for a recipe. This makes gathering everything you need for a recipe easy and saves materials. With this in mind, let’s get started. Here is everything you need to know on how to make a Heavy Work Bench in Terraria.
