The chest in Terraria is needed to store all sorts of things, including potions. Some types can hold up to 99 cells. It is impossible to break the chest until all items are removed from there. Finding a chest is usually possible, and often there are useful resources or items. But if you need a chest to store your personal items, then the easiest way to do it is to make your own.

In this guide, you will learn how to make a chest in Terraria. Since there are dozens of different types of chests in the game, we will analyze the simplest of them, since the rest can be made in a similar way.

Collecting Resources and Crafting a Chest in Terraria

  • To make a chest, you will need two lead or iron ingots and simple wood.
  • If you are going to make, for example, a dynasty chest you will need dynasty wood, and everything else is the same.
  • You can make a chest using any workbench.

By the way, not all chests can be made on a workbench, for example, a glass chest can be smelted only in a glass-smelting furnace, and a bone one in a bone welder.

Tips and Cheats on Chests in Terraria

Keep in mind that the game has a limit on the number of chests that can exist on the map at the same time (approximately 1000), so if too many chests are created, you can’t put all of them.

The chest allows you to protect yourself from a meteorite falling within a radius of about 30 blocks (if the game directs a meteorite into this area, then it will not fall at all). This allows you to protect the entire map from a meteorite falling by placing chests on the entire surface with small gaps between them.

Now you know how to make a chest in Terraria. Using this method, you can collect more than half of the available chests. While you are here, make sure to read our article on all the wings in Terraria.
