How do I upgrade my crafting table?
Build a workbench! It’s the next step up
the crafting table is the smallest and most basic machine. Just used for making sticks, timber and rocks later. There are workbenches, refinieries, mixers, extractors and compressors followed by the centraforge which is for “enchanting” stuff. And like @TheGamerfuls allready said: the workbench is where it starts to get all of them
You forgot another very important use for the crafting table:
